Denver Seminary’s new MA with a major in biblical and theological studies* is a 39-hour, academic degree designed to be completed entirely online and can be completed in just 2 years**.
Students will gain a deeper knowledge of the Bible and its historical context, the nature and character of God, the person and work of Christ, the nature of sin, as well as an understanding of major theological systems. Additionally, they will learn modern strategies for discerning and interpreting the theology of Scripture.
Though it does not meet typical ordination requirements or lead to doctoral studies, the MA with a major in biblical and theological studies provides excellent preparation for many forms and contexts of ministry and is a great option for leaders already serving in ministry.
You can pursue this fully online, residentially, or with a combination of the two!
