MA/New Testament

36 credit hours | 2-3  years


Why study New Testament at TEDS?

This program is excellent preparation for further academic work at the graduate or doctoral level. Typically, MA/NT students pursue careers in teaching and writing. Other students whose vocations are ministry-related have found that the MA/NT provides the grounding in Scripture they need for effective teaching and wise living. Finally, this program also prepares students to teach at some Christian secondary schools or Christian colleges.

ADMISSION TO THIS PROGRAM?

In addition to the requirements for general admission you’ll need the following:

  • 6 semester hours of Bible including Old and New Testament surveys; or TEDS OT 5000 and NT 5000
