The Master of Arts in Missions is designed for individuals who have been in Christian missions ministry for a number of years and have not had the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree. The program provides graduate level training in three areas: Core Curriculum of Missiology and Intercultural Studies; Bible/Theology; and Electives. Students admitted without the B.A. or its equivalent must have at least 3 years of Bible School training, or 2 years of college equivalency courses. This degree is not a stepping stone to a Ph.D. program and in most cases it is a terminal degree. However, exceptional students may petition for probationary entrance into the Doctor of Intercultural Studies program. Please see the admission requirements for the Doctor of Intercultural Studies program.
