Master of Arts in Religious Studies (AMRS)
The AMRS is designed for those practicing other professions (e.g. law, medicine, business, education, journalism, the arts), or those looking to develop a broad basis of understanding in religious studies. Students may enroll either full or part time.
Master of Arts (MA)
The MA is a two-year program that enables students to explore the history, theology, beliefs, and languages of world religions though a variety of scholarly approaches. It is designed for students who wish to acquire the skills to develop a research agenda for doctoral study, or who want a broad and deep grounding in the academic study of religion in preparation for a wide range of professions.
Master of Divinity (MDiv)
The MDiv is a three-year, cohort-based program designed for students from all religious backgrounds who are interested in careers in public religious leadership, whether in traditional ministerial professions or in new and emerging forms of leadership. Students participate in field education in all three years of the program.
Doctoral Program (PhD)
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program is a rigorous, interdisciplinary course of study that prepares students for careers in research, teaching, and publicly-engaged leadership. Students develop a sophisticated grasp of methods and theories in a chosen Area of Study, gain a broad understanding of religion as a phenomenon, and join others in the creation of new knowledge.
