Biblical Languages

The graduate diploma in Biblical Languages covers both Biblical Hebrew and New Testament Greek in depth and allows students to gain facility in reading and interpreting the Hebrew Bible and Christian New Testament in their original languages. The program is available to current Master's students (in the form of a concentration in the Master of Divinity program), as well as to clergy and laypeople interested in in-depth study of the languages of the Bible. The courses for the graduate diploma in Biblical Languages are only available on the Tulsa campus (not online) and by video conference.
