Overview

Students can focus in two major areas: Christian Studies or Intercultural Studies. From these major areas, the learner can specialize further into four major tracks: MA in Christian Studies with Leadership or Apologetics; MA in Intercultural Studies or Intercultural Studies with Orality.

Christian Studies in Apologetics

Learn to defend the faith from some of the best scholars and practitioners of apologetics offered by any institution in the nation. This degree prepares learners to face the challenges that arise in defending the Christian faith in a winsome and compelling manner. Moreover, this degree empowers students to read Scripture and culture to provide biblical, theological, philosophical, and cultural analysis which helps train the learner to develop reasonable and humane defense of the hope that arrives in Christianity. 

OBU’s MA degree includes a common set of classes designed around understanding the essentials of the Christian faith, Christian worldview, and Christian life. As a student, you will build on these core competencies as you pursue focused training centered on leading the church, defending the faith, and reaching the world.
