The M.A. track in Theology develops students as readers, writers, and thinkers through critical and constructive engagement with the Christian tradition and contemporary scholarship. Accordingly, the degree cultivates fair-minded, informed, and well-prepared students for academic work and ministry.
Courses focus on topics and figures within and outside the Christian tradition, and require engagement with primary sources rather than survey or introductory material. Students are trained to engage these sources well through class discussions and writing assignments. Term papers hone skills in argumentation and research, resulting in a clear defense of a precisely articulated claim.
Students who have extensive preparation at the undergraduate level may receive up to 12 hours advanced placement.
Abilene Christian University’s Graduate School of Theology is accredited by the Commission on Accrediting of the Association of Theological Schools.
