Faculty

Uncompromisingly committed to the sufficiency, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture.

We are the faculty of The Master’s University. This institution's doctrinal statement has remained virtually unchanged since the inception of the institution in 1927. Starting in Genesis chapter 1 affirming a literal six-day creation, we are all uncompromisingly committed to the sufficiency, inerrancy, and authority of God's inspired word. Our commitment to Christ and Scripture is affirmed each year in writing by every faculty member. All faculty uncompromisingly affirm this extensive doctrinal statement and we commit ourselves to teach, defend, promote, and instill this specific biblical worldview in its entirety in every student. Our mission, our philosophy of education, our philosophy of spiritual development, and all our activities are uncompromisingly rooted in the Truth. The faculty contains about 50 full-time members across 6 schools, excluding the School of Online. Most faculty hold a Ph.D or equivalent terminal degree, and most faculty teach on-campus in Santa Clarita.
