What will I learn?

This program is designed to provide the best preparation for students who wish to pursue a career in a theological discipline or an ecclesial related career requiring a Master of Arts in Theology. To accomplish this, the program has integrated core theoretical and knowledge areas in theology into a theology major at the undergraduate level. The program includes joint B.A. /M.A. courses designed to develop both the research skills and the basic theological disciplines necessary for an ecclesial leadership role within the church or a church related entity. At the graduate level the program covers core theoretical and knowledge areas in theology. B.A. /M.A. coursework integration results in a holistic, streamlined program wherein students can meet the basic educational degree requirements for theology in a reduced amount of time. This program is committed to the development of servant leadership within contemporary Christian communities and institutions. By seeking the learning and formation necessary, men and women are enabled to bridge the theory and practical application needed to serve as leaders within the Christian community. The program in theology seeks the continued development of the individual servant leader, the formation of genuine Christian community, and the understanding of those relationships and structures necessary to enable the lay ecclesial leader to respond effectively to contemporary pastoral needs.
