Master of Divinity in Biblical Exposition
The Master of Divinity in Biblical Exposition is a 92 semester hour program. The M.Div. in Biblical Exposition requires 24 semester hours of coursework in New Testament Greek and Biblical Hebrew. The program is a well-rounded program designed for students who desire to receive an advanced education in Bible exposition and pastoral ministry. The program is outstanding preparation for the Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Exposition program. The M.Div. in Biblical Exposition provides training in Biblical Studies, Biblical Languages, Theology, Pastoral Ministry, and Theological Research.
The biblical language work consists of eight core courses: four in New Testament Greek, and four in Biblical Hebrew. The core courses progress from basic grammar to syntax to intermediate translation. (The student may transfer core biblical language courses from another seminary upon submitting an official transcript that reflects a grade of “C” or better and upon completing the Biblical Languages Entrance Exams with a grade of “C” or better). Students completing the eight core courses with ATS do not have to pass the Biblical Languages Exit Exams.
The M.Div. in Biblical Exposition does not require a Master’s Thesis. Research will be completed through two Theological Research courses and through writing assignments in the various courses. Students will be challenged to improve their critical thinking and writing skills throughout the program.
The M.Div. in Biblical Exposition program is an advance-at-your-own-pace program. Most students will complete the program in approximately three years.
