The Master of Arts in Bible Teaching (M.A. in Bible Teaching) program is specifically designed to prepare students to teach the Bible in a school setting. In three semesters of study (Fall, Spring, and Summer), students build a knowledge of best educational practices on previous Bible background as they explore every aspect of Bible curriculum, from the “big-picture” of K-12th grade curriculum to daily lesson plans.
