The Master of Arts in Religion (30 graduate semester hours) provides a strong academic foundation in biblical studies, Christian history, and theology. These subjects offer essential preparation for Christian ministry and/or doctoral study in religion.
The Master of Arts in Religion provides a unique blend of religious theory and practical studies that can meet the needs of students with a variety of learning objectives. The classes in the program will be offered either totally online or online with a face-to-face session at the Community of Christ Temple in Independence, Missouri during the fourth week. The faculty is composed of scholars and professionals in the field of religion with the academic and applied backgrounds to make the study of religion stimulating and worthwhile.
*Students from other denominations may substitute approved denomination-specific course work.
Students transferring from other graduate institutions may request the transfer of a maximum of nine hours of credit, provided that the courses transferred have equivalents in the Master of Arts in Religion curriculum and the grades in those courses are “B” or above. The request must be accompanied by an official transcript from the institution where the credit was earned.
