Houston Baptist University
Master of Arts in Apologetics
The MAA program in the School of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University is unique in academia. With world-class faculty, an emphasis on creative expression and a “mere Christian” approach, we aim to train leading defenders of the faith who are culturally engaged.
The MA in Apologetics, with its strong emphasis on reading, writing, communication and critical thinking, equips students for a variety of disciplines. MAA graduates may use their degree in church and para-church ministry. HBU’s partnerships with apologetics organizations, such as Ratio Christi, are designed to help students find ministry opportunities. Graduates may use their degree to integrate faith and work in teaching, business or other professions, or apply their apologetics training in creative writing, music or filmmaking. Lastly, graduates will be prepared for further academic study at the MA or PhD level.
