Heart for missions
Faculty in the World Missions and Intercultural Studies department love to share their decades of experience in the field and in the classroom with students.
All 66 books
A 2-year MA at DTS offers more Bible and theology than a 3-year MDiv at most seminaries, including all 66 books (even Nahum) and an entire course on the Trinity.
Learn to contextualize the Bible and theology
The 2-year MA programs at DTS have a common core of Bible and theology coursework along with specific training in cross-cultural communication that you can apply wherever God has called you to serve.
Goals for MA in Cross-cultural Ministry
In addition to the goals common to all professional degree programs at the seminary, students in the Cross-cultural Ministry program of Dallas Theological Seminary will be able to:
- verbalize principles of effective intercultural ministry;
- demonstrate familiarity with essential principles of anthropology, ethnology, sociology, and psychology in relation to missions;
- evidence a deep commitment to world evangelism;
- communicate the Bible effectively in an intercultural context;
- produce an accurate profile of the chosen country or area of the world; and
