Suggested Course Sequence

The master of arts in Christian ministry can be completed in two years of full-time study. Because you will likely be working full-time while also in school, you may also opt to take courses in the intensive terms or other course formats. For full-time students, we suggest the following course sequence to complete your degree in two years, in fall and spring semesters of each year.

Options also exist for part-time and distance-learning students. Learn more about the variety of course formats and options for extending your program beyond four years.
