Chaplaincy, Master of Arts in Christian Ministry
The Master of Arts in Chaplaincy Studies is designed to prepare students who feel called to provide spiritual support and guidance outside the local church context.
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 hospital, sports, marketplace and prison settings.
Unlike the Master of Divinity in Chaplaincy Studies, this chaplain degree does not require language training.
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.
A chaplain's most important job is to provide religious services, spiritual guidance, and counseling to those in need.
