Seminary Adds Pioneering M.A. in Transformative Leadership and Spirituality

Hartford Seminary is proud to announce a pioneering Master of Arts degree in Transformative Leadership and Spirituality.

The 36-credit program has been created for those students who seek an academic grounding to guide them on their leadership and spiritual paths. The M.A. in Transformative Leadership and Spirituality is designed to train students for leadership roles in corporate, government, and non-profit organizations. It also serves as continuing education for clergy, religious-education professionals, chaplains and counselors, as well as for those seeking to expand their personal knowledge and experience.

Students completing this degree will have grown in an understanding of spirituality and spiritual practices. Together, those inform a way of life that intentionally integrates behavior and belief while honoring the personal search for meaning.

Core to the program is exposure to a rapidly changing world and its multifaceted implications, diversity in understanding and relating to the Divine, a deepening of the awareness of God’s presence in everyday life, and an application of theoretical learning to reflective prayer and practice. Students will work with a faculty advisor in the field of spirituality to design a program tailored to meet their personal and educational goals

“I continue to encounter religiously unaffiliated women and men within various faith traditions who are seeking a deeper understanding of the Divine and want to contribute more effectively to peace and cross–cultural harmony in our tumultuous times,” said Prof. Miriam Therese Winter, Professor of Liturgy, Worship, Spirituality and Feminist Studies. “Seeds for this new degree were sown years ago. To see the full flowering of initiatives that integrate leadership and spirituality in ways that aim to be transformative is good news indeed!”

The M.A. in Transformative Leadership and Spirituality has been approved by the Association of Theological Schools, which recently extended Hartford Seminary’s accreditation by 10 years. The degree has also been licensed by the State of Connecticut’s Office of Higher Education.
