Grace College is now offering a two-year, fully-online Master of Arts in Ministry Studies degree, specifically geared to help equip individuals with advanced training in Bible, theology, and ministry preparation.

The 36-hour online program, which combines a ministry focus emphasis and the rich theological tradition of Grace, is designed to meet the needs of students who are actively involved in ministry without interrupting their career, ministry, or personal life.

“Each course has been designed by the professor who teaches that class [on the Grace Campus] and the online teacher is vetted and screened to offer maximum engagement with students in the adult learning environment designed for active learning and ministry focus,” said Dr. Mark Soto, professor of theological studies and an instructional design specialist . “We believe this is the perfect degree for those who are in supporting ministry positions or are seeking those positions but cannot afford to leave their job at this time.”

The online degree has been approved for accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The Grace College Master of Arts in Ministry Studies is an accredited Master’s degree obtained through Grace College.  It is designed for non-traditional, non-residential students.  Applicants must have achieved a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.  They are required to submit one letter of recommendation along with an official transcript, resume, photos, and formal application.
