Master of Arts in Religion
The M.A.R. program fosters the development of theological understanding as part of educational, professional, and spiritual growth. The M.A.R. is an academic/professional degree designed to give balanced exposure to the theological disciplines while allowing students to focus on an area of interest. It is suitable for students not seeking ordination but wishing to work in a church setting, and for those already ordained but needing further academic work in theological studies. It is also appropriate for those who wish to enhance their understanding of theological perspectives and religious practices for their own growth or to relate to another professional field.
