HPU’s Master of Arts in Theology and Ministry provides preparation for those who will minister to people through the local church and other related ministries, as well as provides a foundation for further graduate theological education.
There is no housing requirement for the Master of Arts in Theology and Ministry program. The 42-hour, non-thesis degree plan is designed to be accessible to ministry students who are currently serving in locations away from the Brownwood area, and relocation is not required.
Modular Class Format
All of the courses that are required to complete the degree will be offered in a two-year rotation in a “modular format” in which the equivalent of two-thirds of the instruction time is accomplished face-to-face in an intensive eight-hour-per-day, four-day-per-week format. The remaining instruction is fulfilled through the combination of assigned readings and electronic interactions.
Students will complete six hours of mentorship from the following areas: Christian care and counseling, family ministries, church leadership and administration, preaching, leading a missional church, community ministries, Christian higher education or other selected experiences in Christian ministry.
