MA in Religion

Join the MA program, planned to start in autumn 2022!

MA in Religion (Andrews University) provides a solid biblical and theological foundation in terms of
biblical knowledge and theological disciplines, critical thinking, and research abilities from which to
pursue interdisciplinary collaboration in terms of research and learning with non-theological
disciplines. It contributes to the preparation of pastors, teachers, and administrators with a solid
understanding of Adventist history, beliefs, and practices, and the ability to think critically and
collaboratively in matters of religion.
