Master of Arts in Theology [MAT]

 Master of Arts in Theology

The Master of Arts in Theology educates men and women with the foundations of the Christian Faith.  Our 30-credit program plus a 6 credit Master’s Thesis, begins with “The Bible in Context”.  

The Bible in Context course introduces the student who does not have an extensive background in biblical languages to the linguistic and interpretive tools which will prove most useful in the discipline of biblical interpretation.  It is not a course in hermeneutics but provides or reinforces the background information necessary to move into such a study.

The Master of Arts in Theology offers 4 areas of study: General Studies, Exegesis, Doctrine, and History.  Each path ends with a Master’s Thesis within the course of study you the student have chosen.

The Master of Arts in Theology is a program for individuals who desire graduate studies in the foundations of Christianity.
