Institutional Resources

Faculty is drawn from the Fellows of the Center for Early African Christianity and elsewhere; the professors are experts in their field of teaching. 

The faculty meet with students online, by phone, or in person to discuss academic progress. They will be onsite at each residency. In addition, the professor of record will assign readings, guide weekly online discussions, teach in the residency, and guide the research portion of the module. The professor will be supported by one or more teaching assistants to aid in evaluation of student work and to daily interact with students.

In addition to the professor who teaches the module, the MA in Early African Christian Studies utilizes administrative resources within the Center for Early African Christianity (its Executive Director).  And the director of the program in Egypt, Rev Dr. Jos Strengholt is also on standby to help you with your studies.
