Our joint programs permit you to combine degree and non-degree programs across disciplines, in particular, the M.A. in Theology with Certificate Programs in the Humanities and the Social Sciences.
In partnership with the Graduate Program in History we offer a joint Master of Arts in Theology degree with a Certificate in History. The program provides a unique opportunity to graduate students in theology who seek to advance their understanding of the historical contexts of religious thought, institutions, and faith traditions; and of historical research and methodology through graduate-level course work in history.
For students in theology who also wish to explore the interdisciplinary field of Gender and Women Studies, we developed this program jointly with the Gender and Women Studies Program. The Certificate allows you to enhance your studies with a deeper knowledge of GWS, which has transformed scholarship and challenged fundamental assumptions in the humanities, social and natural sciences, and the professions.
In cooperation with the Graduate Program in Education and Counseling, we offer a combined Master in Theology with a Certificate in Education. This program is designed for students seeking careers as educators on the primary or secondary level, or in institutions of higher learning. Students will deepen their understanding of curriculum development, assessment, working with multicultural populations, and other aspects of education theory and practice.
For graduate students interested in pursuing careers in community and faith-based organizations that operate both domestically and abroad, with the Department of Public Administration we offer the joint Master and Certificate Program. The program trains students in the pragmatic skills needed for effective leadership, administration, and management while providing in-depth knowledge and experience in the various fields of theological inquiry.
You may combine the Master of Arts in Theology with our Certificate in Theological Studies or the Certificate in Interdisciplinary Theological Inquiry. We offer this program for students seeking to earn credit hours beyond the requirements for the master's degree. It attracts students interested in studying more for personal or professional reasons, for example, in preparation for teaching, ministerial work, or advanced graduate studies.
