Master of Arts in Christian Studies
The Master of Arts in Christian Studies equips students to interpret Scripture in its historical context and to discern its theological application. The knowledge of God through his word is the essential foundation for all faithful Christian ministry. By focusing exclusively on developing skills in accurate biblical interpretation and sound theological reflection, the MACS curriculum grounds students in critical disciplines for informed ministry application. As preparation for further study, all MACS credits can be applied toward the Master of Divinity degree.
Graduates of this program will be prepared to serve the Church in a variety of contexts such as missions, pastoral support staff, Christian education, writing, and lay ministry.
