Master of Arts in Christian Service

The Master of Arts in Christian Service degree is a forty-eight semester hour degree for persons who serve (or plan to serve) vocationally or bi-vocationally as specialized ministers or associate ministers (e.g. of Christian Education, Worship, Pastoral Care) or as permanent deacons. The degree provides a basic understanding of theological disciplines with a mixture of practical coursework in order to focus on Christian service in various church settings. United Methodist students preparing for deacons' ordination may fulfill, with assistance from the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, UMC expectations and utilize this degree to meet specific educational requirements. Normally those pursuing ordination in a vocation other than deacon pursue the M.Div. degree.

The M.A. in Christian Service (M.A.C.S.) is an appropriate degree program for (1) those pursing specialized vocations as ministers or associate ministers of Christian Education, Worship, Pastoral Care, etc. or permanent deacons and (2) persons who seek to enhance the theological foundations of Christian service in a congregational or institutional setting.
