Develop a strong biblical foundation and prepare for various forms of ministry or further studies with the Master of Arts (Biblical Studies). You’ll receive an advanced understanding of the Old and New Testament with emphasis on the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek texts. Building on our long-standing commitment to and respect for the original language, the MABS will challenge you go deeper into God’s Word through exegesis courses in the original languages.
Master of Arts (Biblical Studies) students are typically interested in pursuing doctoral work, for which this degree is excellent preparation. Others are full-time pastors, bi-vocational pastors or non-ordained staff seeking to increase their ministry effectiveness in the church, workplace or other vocations.
At Gordon-Conwell—Charlotte, I was able to customize almost every class I took to prepare me well for doctoral studies. The weekend format was ideal for a stay-at-home mom who needed to chip away at a degree little by little in the midst of a very full life. I will always be grateful for the quality of the education I received at Gordon-Conwell and the way it prepared me to embrace my calling to teaching ministry.”
