M.A. in Religion

This program is designed for those who desire to strengthen the Christian basis for one’s life and work, whether in a secular career or a church staff position, without seeking ordination as ordained ministers. The goal is to help the student to integrate and apply the biblical worldview in a particular field of calling, either in arts and sciences or a particular area of ministry.

 

Upon completion of the MA in Religion, students will:

•Demonstrate a competent knowledge and understanding of the biblical, historical, and theological aspects of Christianity so as to function as church leaders, professional or otherwise.
•Show communicative, inspirational, supervisory, administrative, organizational and other managerial skills necessary for fulfilling the assigned duties and responsibilities within the Christian ministry or mission, such as teaching and consulting in Christian education.
•Demonstrate ability to integrate the Christian worldview into their ministerial endeavors.
•Demonstrate sufficient ability to analyze problems and find solutions to them independently in matters related to Christian ministry.
