Biblical Literature from Nyack College is designed to provide students with a strong biblical and theological foundation for continued research at the doctoral level and professional opportunities.


Biblical Literature from Nyack College offers a unique blend of socio-cultural, historical, and exegetical investigation of scripture and Christian concerns throughout the world taught by faculty who have significant intercultural or church-focused experience

Biblical Literature from Nyack College offers emphasis on either the Old Testament or the New Testament.

Students will build a historical and cultural framework for interpreting the Bible in general, and their testament of emphasis in particular, will gain a command of the formation, content, and critical questions related to the literature of their testament of emphasis, will learn how to trace the development of biblical theology as a discipline and to understand recent theological approaches to their testament of emphasis and will be able to employ solid exegetical and hermeneutical methodology in interpreting the text of their testament of emphasis.


Our master’s degree in Biblical Literature prepares students for further doctoral studies, which in turn is preparation for a career in teaching biblical studies (whether in higher education, church, or secondary school settings).
