Whatever your reason for pursuing a Master of Arts in Theology, you are welcome in the department. Some students plan to pursue doctoral study but do not yet possess the expertise necessary to enter a doctoral program. Many desire a degree that will equip them for the ministries in the church.
Others already have professional competencies in a field other than theology and wish to acquire theological competence. The MAT program also accommodates individuals whose intention is to pursue a personal, avocational interest in theological studies.
The MAT program offers two degree options, a Master of Arts in Theology and a dual degree program in Theology and Social Work. The program also has three certificate options: Pastoral Ministry, Catechetical Ministry, and Spiritual Direction.
