Develop a deep understanding of Scripture in a holistic setting—one that helps you grow personally and fuels a lifelong passion.

The Master of Arts (Theological Studies) at Bethel Seminary St. Paul is designed for students who want to develop a deep understanding of Scripture and biblical interpretation.

Students in this program concentrate in either Old Testament or New Testament, while also taking courses in theology, ethics, history, and spiritual and personal formation.

In addition to developing skills in a biblical language, students explore philosophical and methodological questions of interpreting Scripture, contemporary issues in the field of biblical studies, and an array of interpretive challenges as they dig into biblical texts.

Our graduates leave prepared to serve through their vocations in Christian education and scholarship.
