Trinity Western University

Graduate Program in Biblical Studies (M.A.)

Program Description

Dr. Tony Cummins, Director

The Master of Arts in Biblical Studies is a specialized academic program designed to prepare students to interpret Scripture and investigate major issues that attend biblical studies. Led by expert faculty, students become acquainted with the most recent scholarship in this field. Together they engage in original research and critically examine biblical and related primary texts in their original languages (e.g. biblical manuscripts, the Dead Sea Scrolls, papyri, inscriptions, early rabbinica, pseudepigrapha). Students formulate their own written contributions to scholarly conversations in a style that is professional and compelling. The M.A. in Biblical Studies has a proven track record of preparing graduates for entrance to and success in Ph.D. programs at leading academic institutions.
