MDiv with a Biblical Studies Concentration
If God is calling you to a ministry of preaching or teaching the Bible as your primary function, then your grasp of God’s Word has got to be top notch. Your command of Scripture will have a direct impact on the spiritual depth of those who learn from you. In fact, anyone involved in a ministry of substantive Bible teaching needs the most thorough possible education in the language, history, culture, and theology of Scripture.
The MDiv with a concentration in biblical studies combines well-rounded practical ministry preparation with advanced study in eight additional credit hours of biblical studies courses, including an emphasis in either Old Testament or New Testament theology.
