Master of Arts (Religion)
Baptist Missionary Association - Theological Seminary offers students the opportunity to earn a Master of Arts in Religion. The M.A. in Religion is a broad and dynamic program designed to build on previously learned foundations, while also expanding on topics of Biblical Studies and Theological-Historical Studies.
This program is available to graduate students through an innovative hybrid learning format, allowing students to satisfy credit hours through on campus and online courses. The hybrid format is ideal for busy professionals seeking to advance their education while still fulfilling personal goals and aspirations.
A degree in religion involves the systematic study of a set of beliefs intrinsic to a specific culture and the influences of the truths, or acquired knowledge into daily life practices of individuals. The study of religion encompasses the entirety of all concepts of a faith, while remaining neutral in focus, as to best provide students with a valuable and transferable degree.
The program includes the study of historical and contemporary practices relevant to Christian traditions, using research methods and intellectual tools not tied to any religious tradition. A concentration in the study of religion will provide a solid foundation for students pursuing humanitarian professions as well as those wishing to serve in areas of ministry.
Successful graduates will complete the required 48 credit hours in addition to a thesis or a set of electives culminated by a final exam. Graduates will be able to demonstrate and communicate a basic understanding of theological disciplines for general educational purposes. Graduates can seek to apply the advanced degree in non-ministerial careers such as: Bible Expositor, Educator, Theologian or as a Church Historian.
