Master of Arts in Biblical and Christian Studies Program

Concordia’s Master of Arts (MA) in Biblical and Christian Studies encourages a comprehensive approach to develop a high level of competence in research, writing, teaching and communication skills. Through this program, students are:

  • Prepared with the knowledge and skills that will qualify them for Ph.D. programs internationally in the broad field of Biblical and Christian Studies
  • Expected to demonstrate their scholarly ability through the preparation and defense of a major thesis
  • Expand their communication skills in seminar settings and in supervised lectures delivered by them to undergraduates
  • Increase their knowledge of how Christianity informs their vocation, relationships and activities–indeed, all of life

Program Design

Students in the Master of Arts in Biblical and Christian Studies will receive instruction in a variety of graduate courses and will write their thesis in one of the following areas:

  • Old Testament
  • New Testament
  • Theology, Philosophy and History

Each student will complete five courses (15 credits) in the above areas of concentration, one course (3 credits) in Methodology, and a Thesis (12 credits) for a total of 30 credits needed to complete the program.

In addition a foreign language requirement must be satisfied. The usual foreign language requirement is a reading ability in a language other than English that is most relevant to the student’s research.

Please visit the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies website for further information and detailed Faculty research areas.
