MASTER of ARTS in BIBLICAL THEOLOGY
"STUDY OF THE SACRED PAGE
IS THE SOUL OF SACRED THEOLOGY."
—DEI VERBUM (6, §24)
John Paul the Great Catholic University's Biblical Theology Program offers a unique integration of the various branches of theology with a heavy concentration in the study of Sacred Scripture. Whereas most theology programs offer little more than basic introductory classes in the Old and New Testaments, our program involves courses in all of the major categories of biblical literature. Students gradually move through the various books of the Bible, carefully examining the historical, literary, and theological issues involved in understanding them and applying their lessons today. Likewise, whereas most graduate biblical studies programs offer their students little in terms of theological formation, you will take courses in the major branches of Catholic systematic and moral theology. Our curriculum is rigorous and thorough, including formation in Biblical languages (Hebrew and Greek). In addition to the rigorous formation in theology and Sacred Scripture, the Masters Program prepares you to evangelize and teach. The Practicum courses forms students in how to teach theology.
