MA in Transformational Leadership
PROGRAM HOURS: 36
The Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership (MATL) provides students a ministry lens through which to view and live out their vocation. The MATL is designed to help students purposefully integrate their faith and work whether they sense a call to be a teacher, administrator, musician, artist, entrepreneur, nurse, or other profession. The MATL integrates the theological disciplines, contextual leadership, and specialized courses to help students become an intentionally Christian leader in their chosen field.
The MATL is a 36-credit hour degree program with a simple threefold structure:
- Common Core (12 hours) Courses focused on the theological disciplines
- Integrative Core (12 hours) Courses addressing community and context, leadership development, integrative theology, and practicum/assessment
- Specialization (12 hours) Working with an advisor, students may specialize this degree and choose courses which apply to their area of specialization
An accredited undergraduate degree with a grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or better is expected for admission as a Regular Student.
International students, non-degree seeking students (including students seeking to audit), and students without a bachelor’s degree may view additional requirements here.
