The M.A. in Pastoral Ministry is an on-campus program that combines practical ministry preparation with academic study of theology and the Bible to provide a comprehensive study sufficient for the practice of ministry as understood by the Church of the Nazarene. It is designed for students who have significant undergraduate preparation in religion/ministry. By combining focused undergraduate prerequisites with graduate coursework, the M.A. in Pastoral Ministry is able to cover a traditional M.Div. program of study.
