Mobile MA Programs

Australasia: Mobile Programs

Hear Dr. Darrell Bock discuss cultural engagement in his recent interview on New Zealand's RHEMA radio>>

In Australasia, DTS will be offering three mobile programs: MA/CL, MA(BS), and CBTS.

Master of Arts in Christian Leadership
The MA/CL enables you to stay in your current ministry while DTS partners with local church and parachurch ministries to offer a seminary degree. DTS tailored the program to help you better love and serve your people. You’ll learn alongside other like-minded leaders working for the good of your community and city.
Master of Arts (Biblical Studies)
The MA(BS) provides a strong foundation for Christians living out their faith in any setting. It is designed primarily for lay leaders who desire training so as to better serve within their church or parachurch organization.
Certificate of Biblical and Theological Studies
The CBTS provides Christian laypersons who desire a short program of seminary studies to equip them for effective ministry in the local church or missionary candidates who anticipate service in nonprofessional ministries whose mission board requires graduate study in Bible and theology.

How It Works

There are three types of courses offered in the Mobile MA/CL, MA(BS), and CBTS—courses in your city, in Dallas, and online. We have specifically designed the course rotation so that every other semester either we send a professor to you to teach a live course, or you come to Dallas for specially designed courses for Mobile MA/CL, MA(BS), and CBTS students.
