B.A. Biblical Studies
At The Master’s University, we hold the Word of God as sufficient in all things, including its own interpretation. To best equip our students for their intended fields, ministry or otherwise, we teach them how to approach the Word: through Greek and Hebrew, the context in which it was written, along with a large selection of classes ranging from Biblical Counseling to the book of Revelation.

B.A. Biblical Studies degrees are accredited 4-year undergraduate degree programs offered on-campus in Santa Clarita. There are five emphases offered. Each of these emphases is designed to prepare students for future ministry as teachers, missionaries, and church leaders, as well as for graduate and professional study. Some General Edcuation and Bible units may be taken through TMU Online. Students may also compile required classes in the TMU IBEX Israel Semester or in the TMU Italy Summer program.

This course will discuss the key theological presuppositions that determine the nature of interpretation and drive one’s theological method. A particular emphasis will be placed on the practical implementation of these ideas in various genres with a view to making solid applications.
Theological Basis of Biblical Counseling
A consideration of the theological realities that form the basis of a proper approach to counseling. Special emphasis is given to the nature of God and of man (unfallen and fallen), a biblical definition of the image of God, the nature of sin, the realities of regeneration and progressive sanctification, the concept of “the flesh” (old man/new man), an understanding of the heart/mind as used in Scripture, and the place of the local church in the ministry of counseling.
I have been finished with my Bible classes for over a year now and there has not been a day that I am not thankful for how great an education I received... As much as I have learned from the classes, I have learned so much more from the professors. Their lives as examples of men who want nothing but to serve Christ have been the most impactful thing to me during my time at The Master's University. They have taught me lessons about life and ministry that no book could ever teach, and because of that I will always be indebted to them.Stevie Noch ‘15
