Early Christian Studies

The Early Christian Studies M.A. is an interdisciplinary program offering training in philology, theology, history, liturgy, art history, and philosophy. Through coursework and close independent work with faculty, the program prepares students for eventual doctoral studies by developing student abilities in at least two ancient Christian languages and literatures, as well as imparting a broad knowledge of the intellectual, historical, and social contexts of early Christianity.
