Christian Studies (M.A.)


The vision of the MA in Christian Studies degree program is:

  • To prepare maturing, Spirit-empowered, biblically and theological informed, leaders to serve Christ.
  • To provide graduate level preparation for ministry in a variety of contexts.
  • To prepare those aspiring to serve with the C&MA to meet the academic, licensing, ordination and consecration requirements established by the Christian & Missionary Alliance Board of Directors.
  • To acquaint students with the vision and heritage of A.B. Simpson and the Christian and Missionary Alliance.  

The MACS degree is designed to provide a solid foundation in biblical and theological studies with the option of pursuing an emphasis track in one of the following areas:  Theological Studies, Spiritual Formation, Intercultural Studies, and Christian Ministries.  Another unique feature of this program is that most of the ordination and consecration reading and writing requirements for the Christian and Missionary Alliance are embedded into the program.

This course will fulfill the Christian Theology (CST 5223) requirement in the MACS.
