The Master of Arts (Theology) degree provides a fuller mastery of one area or discipline of theological study than is normally provided at the M.Div. level. The program may serve a variety of aims: further graduate study, preparation for the doctoral level, preparation for some forms of teaching, the scholarly enhancement of ministerial practice, or disciplined reflection on a specialized function in ministry. This degree is built upon a baccalaureate degree in religion or theology.
