Are your sights set on earning both a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree? How about being able to complete them both in five years? This is now possible with DIU’s new ACCELERATED BA/MA DEGREE IN ABRAHAMIC STUDIES. This dual BA/MA degree prepares you to work in the Abrahamic worlds of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam through gaining an understanding of the basic concepts and theories of these global cultures. You will learn to compare and assess the areas of intersection among these faith communities, and may acquire language essentials for the study of the Abrahamic traditions. When you graduate, you will be able to serve cross-culturally in and with Abrahamic communities and organizations based on respectful understanding of their beliefs and practices. You would first complete the BA-IS with minor in Abrahamic Studies (121 credit hours). Upon completion of the BA portion of this program, you then proceed to the 30-credit Accelerated MA-AS. When you begin the MA portion of this degree program, you have only 21 credit hours of study remaining. Further details here.
