Classes Start Aug. 22 for Non-Thesis Master of Arts in Biblical/Theological Studies at University of Mobile
Degree Prepares Graduates for Vocational or Voluntary Ministry
University of Mobile is offering a non-thesis Master of Arts in Biblical/Theological Studies, with fall semester classes starting Aug. 22.
The degree is offered through the UM Adult and Graduate Studies program that provides each student with a “success coach” to help navigate through college, from application to graduation. The graduate program is designed so students may start any semester and finish at their own pace.
Dr. Doug Wilson, dean of the School of Christian Studies, said that, like a seminary degree, the revised 36-credit-hour program offers training to prepare graduates for ministry in Bible and theology.
“Our purpose is to provide quality, graduate-level training for adults who have a calling or desire to serve God through vocational or voluntary ministry. This program provides sound theological training with practical application for ministry in a variety of settings,” Wilson said.
University of Mobile has been named No. 5 Best Colleges Affiliated as Southern Baptist by the research and ranking site CollegeFactual.com, and is listed in the 25 Best Christian Colleges and Universities in the South for 2017 by ChristianUniversitiesOnline.com.
Wilson said every faculty member who teaches in the Master of Arts in Biblical/Theological Studies program is a graduate of a Southern Baptist seminary, an active member of a cooperating Southern Baptist church, holds an earned doctorate with years of experience in ministry or teaching, and affirms the 2000 Baptist Faith & Message and 1978 Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.
