About Master of Arts, MA - at Alphacrucis College

The Master of Arts is designed to provide a general postgraduate-level education, with the opportunity to specialise in certain subject areas. Students can major in one of the following areas:

  • Christian Studies
  • History
  • Cross-cultural Ministry
  • Communication
  • Pastoral Ministry

The Master of Arts is designed to produce graduates who have an in-depth understanding of Christian worldview and its integration with vocation and community. In addition to developing skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication skills, the graduates will be equipped with advanced knowledge of theory in their area of specialisation and the application of theoretical concepts in practical settings. It also prepares students for further study by inclusion within the structured program of some independent research.

The MA consists of 12 subjects; 2 core subjects (RES401 and THE401), 4 subjects in major area, 5 electives, and 1 independent guided research project.

The MA can be completed in 1.5 years of full-time study or 3 years of part-time study (maximum candidacy 7 years). Students must complete at least 6 subjects (20 credit points) at 500 level or above.

Welcome to the Master of Arts at AC, where we believe in inspired learning for influential living. Our classes integrate cutting edge principles in theology, Biblical studies, leadership, and contextual studies with Biblical values, to equip professionals in all contexts. Our students range from pastors and leaders in church-based organisations to IT professionals, doctors, and business men and women. Our lecturers are academics as well as experts in the field who bring contemporary practices and Biblical insights to the classroom based on their daily experience.

The Master of Arts is designed with the purpose of integrating three main areas of Christian Studies, Spirituality and Context, and Skills and Application. Beginning with foundational units in Theology, Ethics, Bible, and Critical thinking, the students can then progress to an area of specialisation of their choice. One of the key features of Master of Arts is the Integrated Project (or Research Project) requirement that provides the opportunity for students to synthesise what they have learned by engaging a particular issue in their area of specialisation. The students also have a selection of electives that range from Ancient Languages to Marketing, to add to their learning experience.

I invite you to experience postgraduate education as you have never before.
