The Master of Arts in Biblical Studies equips students to weave the isolated strands of Scripture into a tapestry that exposes God’s plan and its execution in the affairs of mankind.

    Master's Degree in Biblical Studies (M.A.)

    The ability to know what you believe and why you believe it is crucial to the life of the committed Christian. CCU's Master of Arts in Biblical Studies provides a strong academic foundation for Christians living out their faith in any setting.

    At CCU, we believe that rigorous study of biblical principles strengthens and develops in the student an active knowledge of Christ and his Word, which then equips the student to think biblically about a wide variety of real-world topics.

    Offered through our College of Adult and Graduate Studies, the M.A. in Biblical Studies provides academic training and practical leadership skills for those who have diverse callings and are interested in an integrative biblical studies education grounded in the truth of the Scriptures.
