Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS) is an integrated approach to Christian theological graduate education designed to prepare students for enhanced ministry, both lay and vocational, in their churches, and to prepare those who want to pursue further graduate study. In addition, we have a number of students in the program with non-theological vocational callings who study with us to enrich their own spiritual journey.

We value and draw from our Baptist heritage, but our faculty and students represent a range of evangelical traditions and denominations. Thus, we welcome anyone who would wish to study with us. Coursework exposes students to key questions and concerns in the fields of biblical studies, theology, and practical ministry. Drawing from our specific focus on the Bible, graduates of the MATS program from HBU can responsibly bring the ancient texts of Christian Scripture into dialogue with historical, theological, and contemporary concerns.
