Program Details

The Master of Arts degree in Christian Apologetics is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on defending the truths in the Christian religion. Students interested in understanding more about the history and foundation of the Christian faith may find this program beneficial.

Accepted applicants will spend a two-week residency on the Biola University campus during 2 summers. Students will complete coursework from home to prepare for the summer sessions. Biola also provides special weekend courses that distance learners can attend; these courses help students reduce on campus time over the summer.

The curriculum is extremely flexible and allows a broad education on the defense of the Christian faith. However, course work may be selected toward a particular interest like cultural, philosophical, cult apologetics or biblical studies. Students will participate in online discussion boards and complete modules during the fall and spring semesters. Accepted students will need to have consistent Internet access to retrieve course materials, view grades and interact with classmates.

Through completion of the program students should be able to:
• Understand the Christian faith
• Answer arguments that discredit the faith
• Correct misunderstandings on the history of the religion
• Be able to solve future challenges

This is a 36-credit hour program in which students will take courses in ethics, cultural and scientific apologetics, scripture, philosophy of religion, and more. Graduates from this program may have the opportunity to seek employment in many different areas such as faith radio and television, teaching, ministry, writing and much more.
