Master of Arts - Missiology

The Master of Arts in Missiology is a professional graduate degree beyond the Bachelor of Arts or equivalent, designed to equip students for service as:
     (1) a minister in the area of missions in the local church, or   
     (2) a leader in missions, both foreign and home, or
     (3) a director or leader in a local community ministry agency.
This is a two-year program primarily related to specialized ministry in missions, requiring 60 semester hours of academic credit for graduation.
In addition to the Seminary's general educational objectives, the Master of Arts in Missiology degree is designed to promote growth toward personal maturity and ministry competence in the practice of missions within a church-related ministry. The objectives of this program are accomplished through classroom instruction, the modeling of professors, required practical experience outside the classroom in a practicum setting, the practice of ministry through the Witness One:Seven program, chapel services, and student organizations.
The Master of Arts in Missiology seeks to guide students to develop the ability to understand and interpret the Christian faith in the light of its biblical, theological, historical, and cultural dimensions and to utilize insights gained from these disciplines for the effective practice of ministry in the church, the community and the world.
