Early Christian Studies

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The two-year interdisciplinary MA program in early Christian studies is sponsored jointly by the departments of classics and theology, with the participation of faculty in several other departments. The aim is to provide students from a variety of undergraduate backgrounds with the fundamental orientation, information, and aptitudes needed for the advanced study of early Christianity in their chosen disciplines. The programÆs goals, more concretely, are twofold: to develop the studentÆs skills in at least two ancient Christian languages and literatures (Latin and/or Greek and/or Syriac) and to impart a broad background of knowledge and method in the intellectual, historical, and social contexts of early Christianity.
