Master of Arts in Ministry

Master of Arts in Ministry


Credit Hours Required: 60

The Master of Arts Degree in Ministry at New England Bible College & Seminary offers a broad foundation, while also allowing students more concentrated studies in Ministry.

The M.A. Ministry is pastorally and practically oriented, requiring a mix of foundational academic courses along with a selection of more practical courses in the arts of ministry. A Bachelor's Degree is required, but it does not need to be in Biblical Studies/Theology. An M.A. in Ministry can be preparation for parachurch and lay ministries and provides an excellent equipping for pastors and other leaders already serving in ministry.
