Wesley's Master of Arts (M.A.) program provides theological grounding for those who are curious and want to understand their faith more deeply and for those who are pursuing ministry in the world as part of either their vocation or avocation. The Master of Arts program, designed to be completed in 36 credit hours, can include foundational theology courses, but also allows students to self-design a degree plan to prepare for specialized studies such as children, youth and young adult ministry; faith and politics; faith and health; prison ministry; and multicultural ministry.
