Master of Arts in Practical Theology
The purpose of the Master of Arts in Practical Theology degree is to equip persons for a broad array of ministries through the practice of theological and contextual reflection. The degree program combines a core curriculum of theological studies with the study of particular ministry arts through four areas of concentration: Christian Education, Christian Leadership, Pastoral Care/Pastoral Theology, or Worship. The degree is designed as preparation for specialized professional or volunteer ministry in congregations and beyond. The degree may also be appropriate for lay persons serving in non-ordained ministry positions.
This degree may also be used to add an area of specialization to a Master of Divinity degree.
Prospective MAPT students are encouraged to attend one of our Seminary Weekends, offered in November and February of each year.
