Welcome to the Master of Arts in Religious Studies


Expect to think critically.
Expect to be challenged.
Expect to be inspired.

This 48-credit master’s degree asks students to deepen their own faith understandings. It asks them to connect religious theory and spiritual practice to daily life in faith communities and the world at large. And it asks them to take on the challenges and grasp the opportunities offered by a diversity of faith traditions.

Focused areas of study allow students to pursue specific interests while increasing their knowledge and developing skills in religious leadership. Our focused areas include Biblical Studies; Islamic Studies/Christian-Muslim Relations; Spirituality; Theology and Ethics; and Religious Studies.
