Program Information

Degree Offered:

MA in Theological and Cultural Anthropology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The MATCA program provides students with, 1) Excellent training in anthropological theory, 2) A synergistic interaction with theology on the nature of humanity, 3) A penetrating investigation of culture from a faith-based perspective, 4) Training in holistic and relational ethnographic methods, and 5) The writing of an integrated thesis in the discipline. Our intention is to prepare students to go on to doctoral programs in anthropology with a background in theological thinking and/or for work in the social service sector equipped with both theological and anthropological tools. The curriculum is academically rigorous, represents anthropology at its best and highest level, and endeavors to understand humanity holistically by the incorporation of the most excellent scholarship in theology as well.
