Master of Arts in Bible Exposition

CIU’s Master of Arts in Bible Exposition is founded on eternal Biblical principles.

The Bible Exposition program is for those whom He has blessed with a deep love of His word — those who want to read, analyze, and interpret Scripture. If that’s you, seeking to bring the world closer to God through writing about, teaching, and ministering Scripture, you’ll be at home in the Bible Exposition master’s program.

What You’ll Learn

  • Interpret Scripture in its original languages through direct interaction with the text.
  • Practice sound exegesis and exposition of the biblical text and trace key themes in Scripture.
  • Communicate biblical truth with the goal of life transformation.
  • Discuss the teaching of individual Bible books in detail and contextualize them to a variety of cultures.
