THE MASTER OF ARTS PROGRAM

PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

Greenville Seminary recognizes the benefits of offering degree programs for those who desire a theological education but do not need the ministerial M.Div. degree.

MASTER OF ARTS IN RELIGION

A Master of Arts in Religion (M.A.) emphasizes knowledge of Biblical Theology, Systematic Theology, and Historical Theology, as well as personal piety.

This program is designed for men and women involved in the various non-ordained ministries of the church who wish to gain a sound biblical education for their particular work. Those involved in youth ministry, missions, or Christian education will find this M.A. program particularly suited to give them a thorough theological education. The M.A. program can be an excellent opportunity for men and women in non-church professions to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith.

DEGREE SPECIALIZATIONS

The Master of Arts program may also be designed to provide a concentration in one of the following areas: Biblical Languages, Church History, and Systematic Theology. For further information about courses required in these degree tracks, please contact Dr. Benjamin Shaw, Academic Dean: bshaw@gpts.edu.
