Culturally Relevant. Biblically Sound.

When Jason Deuman was looking for a graduate degree in theology, he wanted one that would challenge him to effectively engage with today's culture. Most importantly, he sought a program that was biblically sound. He found both with our M.A. in Bible and Theology program. "I was taught by great professors who were always willing to wrestle with tough questions—but always from a biblical perspective. At NU, I learned how to think and teach the Bible well."
