The foundation of ministry is the ability to understand and teach Scripture well. This program will develop your skills in exposition and in teaching. You will study the contents, backgrounds and purpose of each book of the Old and New Testaments and become proficient at interpreting and applying passages by understanding their genre, ancient meaning and modern significance. 

You won't do this alone. At Talbot, you will join a community of scholar-practitioners who are committed to the Bible and your spiritual growth as you receive a first-rate theological education with our flexible degree program. Choose from various course formats that will allow you to move quickly and conveniently through your program.

This program is available to students on campus, online, or in a hybrid format.
