Master of Arts in Theology

Prepares contemporary Christian leaders for the challenges of ministering in a changing world

Answering the Call to Serve

It's possibly the only calling in which one is required to serve in order to lead. A theology-based profession demands a dedication to God's plan and an uncompromising willingness to help others. The Walsh University Master of Arts in Theology program prepares contemporary Christian leaders for the challenges of ministering in a changing world…a world in which the need for pastoral leadership extends beyond the boundaries of the church building.
