Many students who complete undergraduate degrees choose to further their studies by pursuing master’s degrees prior to launching their careers. A Master of Arts (MA) may provide access to more senior positions with higher earning potential earlier in their careers.

What is an MA in Religious Education? Students completing this advanced degree typically choose to go into education or ministry. The degree often has Christian affiliations. Courses may address topics such as ethics, moral development, intercultural religious witnessing, leading missional communities, theology and history. A student may also complete a thorough study of religious texts. For those interested in parochial school or church administration, classes in business, finance, human resources and leadership may round out the topics covered.

Graduates learn excellent presentation skills that can be used in the classroom or for other types of lectures. Students often graduate with advanced written communication skills that can prove useful in writing, editing and publishing careers. They also learn servant leadership skills that can be applied in all aspects of life.

Tuition and fees for master's programs in religious education can vary, depending on whether the university is public or private. Other factors that may impact cost include the location of the institution and whether courses are offered online or in-person.

Several types of career paths are available for graduates. Those interested in educational careers may find positions such as religious educator or counselor, parochial school administrator, curriculum director or instructional supervisor. Graduates interested in ministry may be able to work as missionaries, chaplains or preachers. Many religious organizations hire graduates of these programs as scholarly researchers. Other jobs include content writers, publishers or magazine editors for publications that cover theological topics.

Religious education studies can be pursued online on a full-time or part-time basis, or in-person at universities that offer studies in theology. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
