Wesley Introduces New Master of Arts Program at Capitol Hill Event

Jun 14 2012

The U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center was the setting for an afternoon discussion at the intersection of public service and theology on June 12. Representative Edward Whitfield (R-KY) welcomed Wesley Theological Seminary President David McAllister-Wilson and the staff and faculty of Wesley to Capitol Hill to introduce the new Master of Arts program now available at the seminary.
The public was invited to join the discussion and to learn more about the new MA. Several hill staffers and other guests were on hand as President McAllister-Wilson, recent graduate Adam Briddell, faculty members Sean Casey and Sathi Clarke, and Director of Admissions Chip Aldridge spoke about the new Master of Arts program.  The presentation gave those in attendance the opportunity to ask questions, network with faculty and staff, and gather information about Wesley’s new offering.
The new Master of Arts program is designed to allow students to engage in a class or two, or to self-design a course of study around their personal goals and professional interests. The program is perfect for those seeking to deepen their spiritual life and to examine the texts and traditions of Christianity, and for those seeking to add a theological dimension to the work they do in the world. “My studies have made me more committed to reflecting my own faith in those things I do to change the course of our nation.  Wesley is where faith, public affairs, and action come together as one,” said Mike McCurry, former White House Press Secretary and US Department of State spokesman.
