MBS Curriculum and Classes

The training that Master’s Bible School offers overseas is separated into three modules that culminate in a final exam. Each module is approximately ten days long and consists of three to four classes. Each class is worth 1 to 3 credits. There is an extended break between each of the three modules to allow native missionaries to continue their local ministries and/or occupation. We coordinate the dates of each module with a regional contact and send at least two teachers per training module. Each student who completes our specified number of credits receives a Mastery of Biblical Studies certificate.

Below is an alphabetical list of the classes we offer. All curriculum is continuously being updated and revised to better serve our international brothers and sisters. Click on any title (excluding the elective classes) to view a sample of our curriculum.
