Master of Arts in MINISTRY STUDIES (MINOL.MA)
The Master of Arts degree in Ministry Studies at Lee University provides a program of study that combines practical studies and practical ministry. For those whose undergraduate degree focused on religious studies, this graduate program offers the opportunity to further the student’s knowledge and expertise. For those whose undergraduate degree focused on disciplines other than religion, this graduate program can fill the missing pieces of the student’s education. The Master of Arts in Ministry Studies will equip the student to be the leader in ministry that God has called and gifted the person to be.
The courses in this program are specifically designed to help the student understand the biblical and theological foundation of issues related to ministry in contemporary contexts, and then to move beyond theory to the implementation of practical skills for successful vocational ministry. The combination of superior education and ministry experience of our highly qualified faculty enable them to present a realistic approach to this union of theory and practice. The online design of this program offers convenient course scheduling to better accommodate the busy lives of working adults. Our students are a diverse group comprised of women and men who range from recent graduates to experienced ministers. The camaraderie between students and faculty, combined with discussion-based classes create an exciting learning environment that readily lends itself to ministry application.

The degree includes 18 hours of common core courses and 18 hours of courses within each track. The student’s learning experience will culminate in either a track-specific final project or internship.
