The Masters in Applied Linguistics for Bible Translation prepares students to perform specialist roles in Bible translation service among minority language groups. Our graduates will have the tools to work as facilitators in mother-tongue Bible translation projects as well as potential consultants for both written and oral Bible translation. Our Master program is our response to the “End Bible Poverty” call, and more specifically to the “Pacific Wa’a Covenant” signed by leaders of several translation organizations in the Pacific region. In this context, the UofN has a significant role in multiplying the next generation of Bible translators, who will contribute to eradicating Bible poverty in the world.

The Masters in Christian Formation and Discipleship
Cape Town, South Africa and Harpenden, England

We define Christian Formation as the process and practices that deepen one’s experience of the triune God together with others, as well as grows one’s character and clarifies one’s vocational calling so that one relates and lives as Jesus would if he were that person. Our program is designed to first facilitate the Christian formation of the candidate while equipping them to do the same for others. In this context of growing as a disciple and facilitating the discipleship of others, the candidate will explore a breadth of relevant theories from the disciplines of theology, church history, psychology/counseling and education while examining a variety of discipleship models. The candidate will continue to adapt their own model of discipleship as they integrate and apply what they are learning.
