Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies (MAPS)
The Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies (MAPS) embraces four areas of development - intellectual, ministerial, human, and spiritual. In addition to a ministerial heart, effective pastoral ministers embody personal and spiritual maturity, knowledge of theology and other disciplines, and pastoral skill. This degree provides a uniquely systematic and in-depth education in pastoral ministry's knowledge base and methodologies; it provides ministers a broad and deep foundation in religious thought, and lays the groundwork for an effective and well-informed pastoral practice.
Students who enroll in the MAPS degree can study under the general MAPS program or focus their studies in one of three areas of "specialization."
- MAPS - Health Care Chaplaincy Concentration
- MAPS -Religious Education Concentration
- MAPS -Youth Ministry Concentration
