Emma Austin

VET Program Assistant, Ministry & Leadership

Emma has been connected with Alphacrucis College since 2010 when, as a recent high school grad, she joined her family on the Old Testament Field Study to Israel. After this experience, she changed her university preferences (and the course of her life!) and decided to pursue biblical studies at AC. She continued on to the Masters of Theology, with a semester exchange at Jerusalem University College, located in Jerusalem. After completing her MTh thesis, "Beyond the Face: a case for early Orthodox iconography" (2015), she returned to Jerusalem to finish her second Masters, focusing on the geography and history of the Bible. Imbued with a passion for the relationship between the biblical text and the geography of the Promised Land, she looks to pursue a PhD exploring the prophet Jeremiah's use of geographic imagery. She is currently working with the VET department.
