Overview

Appropriate as an entry level and general professional degree in religion, this program offers intensive study in the Scriptures and the essential truths of the Christian message. The Master of Arts in Religion - Church History  degree at Liberty University  benefits pastors and ministry leaders who seek a firm scriptural foundation for service in Christian ministry.
