The M.A. in Religious Studies is a broad-based degree program for students who seek to integrate their faith with knowledge of religions and their impact on society, and who may be seeking to equip themselves for a variety of ministries, especially for the task of building peace among religions and cultures or for non-profit leadership.
Religious education—to communicate ideals, beliefs and practice—is a central task of religious leadership. The two Master of Religious Education concentrations are two-year professional programs that provide students with the skills, knowledge and methods necessary for effective educational and ministries.
The Divinity Program is a three-year professional program designed for students who are preparing for church leadership or for any number of specialized ministries including youth ministry, campus ministry, interfaith ministry, pastoral care and ministries of social service.
