Ministry - M.A.

Courses in both the Christian Spirituality (CSP) and Master of Arts (MA) in Theology programs that are taught on campus may be taken in fulfillment of MAM (Master of Arts in Ministry) requirements for students who are resident or can come to campus for class meetings, as long as the course content is largely interchangeable with the MAM course it is replacing. Permission of the program directors of MAM and either of the other programs is necessary for this substitution to be acceptable.

Since the MAM program does not have “electives” per se, it is necessary that transferred credit from other accredited graduate courses have essentially equivalent content to fulfill MAM requirements. Determination of actual equivalency will be the responsibility of the MAM program director. Students may apply for up to six hours of transfer graduate credit, but must provide the syllabus for the course from which credits are being requested.
