Christian History

The Master of Arts (Theology) with a concentration in Christian History provides a path of advanced study of the history and impact of the church locally and globally, often in preparation for doctoral studies. This concentration will introduce students to the academic field of study, provide opportunity for advanced research in particular sub-fields, and work towards advanced research and writing, culminating in a written thesis.
