MASTER OF ARTS DEGREE
| General Information

Buildings at Petra, Jordan.Our long-term programs of study have been developed over five decades to offer graduate and undergraduate students an advanced program of biblical history and geography, biblical language studies as well as a first hand experience of the region through a concentrated study of the culture and religions of the Middle East. Long-term students travel the land from Dan to Beersheba, take field trips throughout Egypt and Jordan depending on the program of study in which they are enrolled.

Highly qualified faculty members from a variety of cultures and traditions help students learn to use the historical, geographical, archaeological, cultural and linguistic data in the interpretation of Scripture. They further the students understanding of the interplay of ideologies and customs in the political, social, and historical relationships of the Middle East.
