Online Master of Arts program adds Literature concentration

Developing the ability to understand, evaluate, and use literature in life and ministry is the focus of a new concentration in BBC's Master of Arts program.

The totally online Literature program expands students' analytical and interpretation skills in literary content and criticism and broadens their ability to think critically in a range of contexts.

Led by Dr. Janet Hicks, chair of BBC's English and Communications Department and director of the Master of Education program, the graduate-level concentration enables students to:

- Use communication skills to think, write, and speak clearly and effectively about Christian and non-Christian worldviews through literary analysis.
- Read and interpret literature literally, grammatically, and historically.
- Demonstrate critical thinking skills to recognize and evaluate literature and the perspective from which it is written, assessing its contribution to critical thought.
- Show information literacy skills to retrieve, evaluate, and synthesize information for the development of a thesis.
