How does theology intersect with today’s culture and society? Through the Master of Arts —Christian Thought, you’ll explore theology and the history of Christianity, probing tough questions and engaging in thoughtful discussion about the relationship between the Gospel and surrounding culture. As you prepare for service and leadership, you’ll learn to better articulate the Christian faith in your context, understand the implications of Scripture in today’s world, and integrate theological reflection into everyday life.
Master of Arts — Christian Thought students are typically interested in teaching ministries in the church, Christian schools, colleges or seminaries. Some intend to pursue 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.
“My initial attraction to Gordon-Conwell was its excellent reputation and uncompromising adherence to high academic standards. However, as a student, I was even more impressed by the diversity of students and sense of community. Studying at Gordon-Conwell thoroughly challenged and equipped me both academically and spiritually. I am more confident, competent and enthusiastic about going forth in my divine assignment.”
