The Bachelor of Arts in Theology prepares students who have been called by God to a life of service as gospel workers in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. This degree is uniquely tailored for service to the people of the Middle East and North Africa region. 

We aim for our students to effectively proclaim biblical faith through personal witness, preaching, teaching, and leadership in their communities and around the world.

The mission of the program is to equip converted Adventist gospel workers and leaders to think theologically, engage globally, and live biblically.


I recommend studying theology at MEU because of the high level of education. The local professors are well-balanced conservative Seventh-day Adventists and well-experienced pastors. Furthermore, the opportunity to learn from experts in some theological regions is an enriching experience. Additionally, the price that one pays for the level of education they get cannot be comparable. It is relatively very cheap comparing to other SDA universities. Finally, MEU is a great Adventist community maintaining a sense of family belonging.

I recommend MEU’s theology program because it is well established to prepare knowledgeable ministers about almost all aspects of life. Furthermore, teachers in the program are faithful dedicated pastors who are giving their best in preparing effective ministers.

MEU’s theology program has touched me because God was speaking through each course. I learned, grew, and was touched by people that presented Christ.
