- You may be able to receive up to six hours of credit in the MA program through advanced standing testing for prior study or knowledge in Bible and Theology. Advanced standing means that you have demonstrated competence equivalent to completing one or more of the courses listed below.
- If granted, advanced standing reduces the number of credit hours needed to complete the degree and can open doors to more courses in your specialization. A student whose undergraduate major was in Biblical Studies, Religion, or Theology may be able to complete the degree in one year of full-time study. See the Academic Program Advisor for more details.
