Program Description

The Master of Arts (Religion) is a two year, post-baccalaureate, program in theological studies designed for general educational purposes or to provide basic mastery of a particular theological discipline. The program seeks to prepare persons for both ordained and non-ordained ministry and for general pastoral and religious leadership responsibilities in congregations and other settings; the degree in itself does not qualify one for further advanced study.

Program Goals

The central goals (adapted from ATS standard E.2) of the Carroll M.A.R. degree, as an advanced program that is oriented toward general theological education, include the following:

Goal 1:
Master of Arts (Religion) degree recipients will give evidence of a survey-knowledge of various theological disciplines.
Goal 2:
Master of Arts (Religion) degree recipients will give evidence of focused knowledge in a specific discipline, or interdisciplinary knowledge.
