For students interested in beginning a seminary education, Baptist Bible Seminary’s newly designed Master of Arts degree is an accessible and practical choice. With most concentrations coming in at 30 credits, the completely online Master of Arts degree can be completed in as little as two years. The streamlined structure provides an affordable way to get a theologically sound and immediately applicable seminary degree.
Even better, the degree fits completely into BBS’ Master of Divinity program, and it can qualify you to continue in BBS’ Doctor of Ministry program. This means, when you’re ready to take the next step in a seminary education, all of your credits will easily transfer into the Master of Divinity degree, and you’ll be prepared to study at the doctoral level.
Fit Your Ministry Goals
You can hone in on your area of interest by choosing one of seven concentrations, each focused on a different area of biblical knowledge.

Electives within your concentration help you customize your study even more. Choose one of the following concentrations:
- Biblical Apologetics
- Biblical Languages
- Biblical Studies
- Church Planting & Renewal
- New Testament Studies
- Old Testament Studies
- Theological Studies
