MA in Theology with Education Minor

Students seeking an MA in any of our four concentrations can pursue a minor in Education. This option is excellent preparation for those who plan to teach theology at the high school level, where candidates with a combination of academic theological training and teacher training are in high demand.

Students who choose the Education minor add the following four courses from the School of Education to their program:

  • CIEP 414: Instructional Methods for Diverse Populations
  • CIEP 423: Advanced Reading/Writing in the Content Areas
  • CIEP 425: Classroom Assessment
  • CIEP 458: Classroom Management

For those students who choose this option, the Theology Department will recognize two of these four required School of Education courses as fulfilling two electives in the MA program. The other two School of Education courses are in addition to the usual MA course requirements. Students frequently take these additional two courses during the summer, and full-time students usually finish in two years.
