Master of Ministry
The Master of Ministry will equip the student with a solid biblical-theological foundation and with practical knowledge and skills for service in the church or other ministry organizations. The unique element of the program is its emphasis on leadership training – far more than a typical seminary program would include.
Why Study Ministry?
The Master of Ministry degree is an alternative model of ministry education that aims to prepare effective leaders for 21st-century churches. Students will be equipped for a higher level of service in church leadership. This program can also be a "jump start" to seminary training.
The Master of Ministry fully online program consists of 42 credit hours and can be completed in 24 months. Classes are structured in a convenient 8-week format for working adults. Skilled and experienced professors with real-world expertise instruct the courses and will work directly with you to expand your knowledge and improve your skills. A baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university is required to enroll in the Master of Ministry at Anderson University.
The entire M.Min. may be completed online, however, students must complete the final capstone course (CHR 595 - Ministry in the 21st Century) in residency at the AU main campus in Anderson, South Carolina. The capstone course is typically offered on campus in mid-July.
The M.Min. also offers optional intensive courses which are available on-campus in June and July at the main campus. These are one-week long intensive classroom courses which may be taken at the Anderson University main campus.
