About this course
The Master of Arts in Biblical Studies (MABS) is designed for men and women who want to grow in their knowledge of God's Word but are not able to take a traditional semester-oriented course of study. We are looking for men and women, elders, deacons, deaconesses, women's ministry workers, etc., who seek some formal academic training in the Bible. Our core classes are offered in the summer so that students can maintain their full-time jobs and yet take time off in the summer to study and grow.
The Master of Arts in Biblical Studies (MABS), instituted in 2006, is perfectly tailored for individuals such as pastors, missionaries, teachers or school administrators who are actively involved in ministry. This modular based program enables students to earn a graduate degree in three to six summers, depending on their own schedule and commitments. This format allows students to pursue in-depth training in biblical studies while continuing in their current ministry or occupation. The program schedule includes summer term core classes that meet on campus during 2 weeks in July, and correspondence and travel-study courses carried out in the fall and spring terms.
