Areas of Concentration
A strong foundation in the entire biblical corpus.
As a member of the GTU, DSPT can offer its students the choice of several areas of study designated by the GTU that draw upon the expertise of faculty from DSPT, GTU and UC Berkeley.
The Graduate Theological Union (GTU) Common M.A. in Biblical Studies covers the Jewish and Christian canonical, deuterocanonical, and extra-canonical scriptures as well as the background literature of early Israel, biblical and post-biblical Judaism, and early Christianity. The critical study of primary texts is emphasized, and the development of skill in appropriate languages is central to the program. More information is available at the GTU website.
