The Master of Arts degree in Christian Apologetics is designed for individuals who desire academic and practical preparation for proclaiming and defending the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. Students are prepared to articulate a Christian worldview reverently, with intelligence, confidence, and compassion. The program fosters personal spiritual growth and maturity through guided study of the Scriptures and theology, mutual encouragement in the Christian life, and intellectual rigor.
The program incorporates knowledge and perspective from many academic disciplines and provides stimulating graduate education for those who wish to engage unbelievers effectively in the world of ideas.
The curriculum is designed for students who may have little or no formal academic training in biblical studies, theology, or philosophy. The majority of our students study part-time with us while often working full-time elsewhere. Our courses are offered in the evenings (with optional weekend seminars) to accommodate the needs of our students.
The M.A. in Christian Apologetics is offered in association with Talbot School of Theology. Applicants who plan to pursue advanced academic degrees in philosophy or ethics may wish to investigate the Talbot M.A. in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics.
