MA Mission

The joint mission of each of the two MA degree programs offered through Oklahoma Baptist University’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies is to provide each student with a solid foundation in the Christian faith, Christian worldview, and Christian life, and to equip the student to follow his or her respective calling to lead the Church, defend the faith, and reach the world, for the cause of Christ, and glory of God.

MA Degrees

OBU’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies offers two distinct MA degrees with specific concentrations:

MA in Christian Studies: Leadership
MA in Christian Studies: Apologetics
MA in Intercultural Studies: Intercultural

Each MA degree includes a common set of classes designed around understanding the essentials of a Christian faith, a Christian worldview, and a Christian life. As a student, you will build on these core competencies as you pursue focused training centered on leading the church, defending the faith, and reaching the world.
