Graduate Programs

The Graduate Studies department hosts two Master of Arts degree programs:

The Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling (MABC) is designed to be intensely practical. The content of the courses emphasizes the practical skills of counseling without neglecting the solid biblical foundation on which these skills are built. The classes, homework and reading assignments can be practically implemented in each student's life and ministry immediately. Each course the student takes will enhance his/her walk with God and ministry.

The Master of Arts in Biblical Studies (MABS) is designed for men and women who want to grow in their knowledge of God's Word but are not able to take a traditional semester-oriented course of study. We are looking for men and women, elders, deacons, deaconesses, women's ministry workers, etc., who seek some formal academic training in the Bible. Our core classes are offered in the summer so that students can maintain their full-time jobs and yet take time off in the summer to study and grow.

The Master's University is authorized to recommend candidates for both Multiple and Single Subject Preliminary teaching credentials. As a faith-based institution, the purpose of the credential program is to enable students to become excellent teachers who integrate faith into teaching, learning and living.

The MABS online provides a systematic graduate-level study through the various sections of the Old and New Testaments. It also includes an examination of the major categories of Christian Theology with particular focus on their application to current societal issues.

The focus of this program is to provide graduate-level instruction to equip individuals to work effectively in a broad range of business environments. 

The Master’s Seminary exists to advance the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping godly men to be pastors and trainers of pastors. This is accomplished through an educational program and environment of spiritual fellowship and relationships which emphasize unreserved commitment to the worship of God, submission to the authority of the Scriptures, a life of personal holiness, the priority of the local church, and the mission of penetrating the world with the Truth.
