MA in Biblical Exegesis and Linguistics (MABEL) Advising

The Advising Center wants to help you make informed decisions as you progress toward graduation. MABEL students often ask two questions:

When should I start taking classes at the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics (GIAL)?

As indicated in the latest edition of the DTS catalog, students should seek to complete certain courses prior to starting classes at DTS, and others after their DTS experience has concluded. Students are required to report their GIAL course registration to the DTS Registrar’s Office each semester. Upon request, the GIAL Registrar will send enrollment verification to the DTS Registrar’s Office.

Please see your DTS catalog for your degree plan. Pay special attention to planned course offerings for particular courses: WM540 is offered in the fall of odd numbered years.

How do I complete my Spiritual Formation requirement?

Due to the specialized scheduling and ministry considerations of the MABEL program, students must complete a specialized, MABEL Spiritual Formation program. Please contact the Spiritual Formation Office for more information.

This page provides basic information. Academic Advisors are happy to come alongside you as you journey with the Lord. Schedule an advising appointment today!
