Master of Arts

The MA program is a 72 credit hour degree intended for students with academic interests in theological and religious studies. It is an appropriate pre-doctoral program and provides a broad background in theological and religious studies, work in an area of concentration, and a thesis project. The curriculum includes study in an area of concentration, required courses to ensure breadth of religious and theological backgrounds, an MA colloquium, language study, and the development and writing of a thesis.
