Become fad-proof for a lifetime of ministry by rooting yourself in the history of the Church and training in the classic theological disciplines. The Master of Arts — Church History will provide a strong historical, biblical and theological foundation for your future in teaching, ministry or further studies. By exploring Christianity from the first century to the 21st century, you’ll learn how Christians have remained faithful through many cultures, events and eras.
Master of Arts (Church History) students are typically interested in pursuing doctoral work, for which this degree is excellent preparation. Some may wish to teach in Christian education, enter into other ministries or learn to more effectively serve in their current vocation.
I encountered professors and students at Gordon-Conwell who took both the Christian faith and human learning very seriously. That openness to human learning served me quite well as a doctoral student at the University of Notre Dame, where I subsequently earned a Ph.D. in American history, and it continues to inspire me in my current roles.”
