Curriculum in the Master's Degree in Theological Studies Program

CCU's Master of Arts in Theological Studies curriculum attempts to explore God’s Story in the Bible through Biblical, systematic, historical, and dogmatic theological lenses. Students research Scriptural truth through the Biblical Covenants, the Gospels and the Epistles.

The terms Bible and Theology are quite different. Compare our master's in Theology and master's in Biblical Studies.

The 39 credit-hour degree is designed to be completed online within two years of intensive study. Students may hold full-time jobs during the course of study. All work applied toward a master's degree must be completed within four years from the date of enrollment.

CCU students participate in theology classes that blend the latest in eLearning technology with the latest business theory and practice. Students attend classes online, do research using the Internet, exchange emails, and participate in online discussions. Even assignments and tests are submitted online.

Required theology courses

Students are required to complete 13 courses for the M.A. in Theological Studies. Some of the foundational courses within the Theological Studies curriculum include:

  • Major Approaches to Theology (THE 530). This course provides an overview of the various systems of theology such as Biblical, Systematic, Exegetical, Historical, Dogmatic, and Contemporary Theology.
  • Exegetical Theology: Hermeneutic (THE 539). Exegetical theology is the theology of the biblical text itself. It is the theology product of the individual's exegetical analysis of a passage in its context. This course uses the Logos Language Tools to exegete Scripture. The course analyzes the biblical author's grammar and syntax to discover the theology and the teaching of what the author meant by what they wrote.
  • Historical Theology: 1st Century to 21st Century (THE 556). This course traces the development of theology from the early church through the Post-Modern era.
