This special Master of Arts degree is for students called to provide spiritual support and guidance outside the local church.
The Chaplaincy MA degree will provide a solid biblical and theological underpinning as well as a balanced training in pastoral counseling skills and intercultural studies. This Masters in Chaplaincy will provide solid foundational training that prepares individuals to become a chaplain for ministry in military, hospital, sports, marketplace and prison settings.

The following types of students are encouraged to consider this program:
Those already having had several years of vocational ministry experience who desire further theological study in order to be better prepared for a chaplaincy role.
Students desiring additional theological study for their particular field of ministry.
This is a terminal degree program for those who do not plan to pursue a Doctor of Ministry degree in the future.
Students called to provide spiritual support and guidance to the military and in other workplace settings in which there is greater emphasis on counselling and spiritual support ministry.
A chaplain's most important job is to provide religious services, spiritual guidance, and counseling to those in need.
