Degree Programs

ABTS offers two degree programs that accommodate ministry careers of all shapes and sizes. Take a look at the programs we offer to see what fit is best for you.

Master of Religious Education (MRE)

The Master of Religious Education at Asia Biblical Theological Seminary is designed to improve your effectiveness as a ministry leader on your own terms. Through various concentrations including pastoral and educational ministries, this program enhances your ministry competencies and broadens your biblical and theological foundation for effective leadership.

Master of Arts (MA)

The Master of Arts (MA) degree is a 64-credit hour program providing opportunity for in-depth investigation into the three basic content areas. A substantial elective category allows students to explore areas appropriate to their ministry context. Students who have not accomplished any graduate studies are encouraged to complete the MRE degree before progressing to the MA degree.  Students who complete the MRE first may apply all 31 credits from the MRE degree toward completion of the MA degree.
