dardemile Posted June 15, 2014 Share Posted June 15, 2014 Hello, all, I am starting to look into masters programs with emphases in New Testament and early Christianity. I will be applying for fall 2016, so I have some time to make my application decisions (obviously). My main question concerns the credibility of British masters programs. I have some family connections in the Aberdeen, Scotland area that (if I am admitted) would make the masters programs at the U of Aberdeen quite affordable. They are willing to cover my living expenses, and even throw some money at my tuition. My main purpose for applying would be to give myself a good, affordable option to continue my studies if I don't receive a good funding offer here in the U.S. For those of you who are already out in the world of top grad programs, do you think that a MPhil or MSt from the U of Aberdeen be a good step toward receiving funding from an American PhD program in NT/EC? I am willing to do a second M* something here in the U.S., but I am curious if any of you think that the Aberdeen degree would be a good thing, or just a fickle waste of my time. (I should add that I will have two years of Greek as an undergrad. So I will have some of my language work done, but obviously not all of it.)
