Make an impact wherever you go
Our MAAT program will help you cultivate your leadership qualities whether you’re called to the church, a nonprofit or a parachurch organization. We’ll help you build a foundation through biblical and theological studies, spiritual formation and cross-cultural engagement. And we’ll prepare you to make an impact in specialized settings through course work, practica and in-ministry learning opportunities. The three-year equivalent program (42 semester hour units) parallels the Doctor of Ministry program, and students take the same core seminars as the doctoral students.
Students select a program concentration (also called a ministry track) upon admission. Framework Studies courses are available on campus or online. The plan and schedule for concentration courses varies by track.
Courses in the Ministry Development tracks are offered in a cohort model. M.A. students join D.Min. students in the intensive courses of the ministry tracks. MAAT-only cohorts require a minimum of eight students to launch. Courses are offered in residence and online. The intensive coursework is a weeklong intensive, two weeks out of a year.
