Pastoral Studies – Religious Education concentration
The Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies (MAPS) degree program offers a concentration in Religious Education. This program develops the practices of thinking, acting, and teaching necessary for service in today’s culturally, generationally, and theologically diverse church.
Students in this concentration cultivate the practice of considering every problem and situation through theological lenses, so that the outcome or solution is infused with the principles of faith. These habits prepare students of the Religious Education concentration to engage, catechize, and educate all age groups in a variety of contexts.
