As the Lord tears down and rebuilds lives, we are invited to be his workmen. The vision of the Department of Counseling and Interpersonal Relations faculty is for our students to have a strong, unwavering biblical world view and a deep understanding that Christ makes all things new.
Our students are trained to assist hurting people in the healing journey by being scripturally grounded, professionally skilled, and interpersonally competent as they work in faith-based and secular mental health agencies. The Master of Arts in Interpersonal Relations degree is a non-licensed degree for pastors, human resource directors, teachers, coaches, nurses, law enforcement officers, managers, student affairs personnel on college and university campuses, lay people, and others who require counseling skills in the work place.
This 37-credit-hour degree offers training in the application of skills to assist hurting individuals in ministry and secular settings. The M.A. in Interpersonal Relations degree prepares individuals to minister in the church, on the mission field, and in the work place, without becoming licensed. The hybrid online venue involves some on-site class work in support of the majority of online course work.
Grace College and Seminary is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association.
