Online Master's in Christian Studies Degree Requirements

The program of study consists of 30 hours (10 courses) of graduate work and each student can choose from six tracks of concentration:

  • Biblical Studies
  • Christian Education
  • Church Planting
  • Youth Ministry
  • Pastoral Ministry
  • Missions and Evangelism

Christian Studies Core Courses – 18 Credit Hours Required

*Core courses do not have to be taken in the above sequence. As an example, Old Testament Survey II can be taken before Old Testament Survey I. Students can also take advanced courses before completing all core courses.

Elective Courses – 12 Credit Hours Required

Four additional courses must be taken to complete the required 30 semester hours. Those courses may be from any of the other courses in the program the student has not taken but wants to take because the courses will help in his or her ministry and ministry plans. If a student wishes, he or she can take MMOL 639 Ministry Project. This course must be arranged through the Program Director at least one term before the student desires to take the course. The student must have a definite plan for a ministry project and a professor must be available to direct the project.

Missions and Evangelism Concentration - All four courses required
