MA in Religion

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