What is a Master in Ministry? A Master in Ministry is an advanced degree in biblical studies, along with a concentration in vocational practices to prepare students for a long career in the field. It encompasses a theologically grounded curriculum to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible above and beyond a bachelor’s degree. Providing practical and experiential instruction in ministry services, the degree also includes study in religious culture and understanding.

A student may choose to obtain this type of degree for several reasons. With an in-depth biblical and ministry background, students will obtain the knowledge and communication skills to serve ministerial needs for churches and communities small and large. Acquiring skills in discipline contributes to the ability to communicate faith and opens up doors in a wide array of private and public institutions.

The cost of the program will be varied depending on the location and the duration of studies. Contact the administration offices of prospective schools and universities for specific questions regarding cost.

A Master in Ministry will offer individuals a variety of opportunities for jobs. Many degree holders will choose to become the leader and minister of a church and its congregation. Nonprofit organizations will also have openings for students who have this type of background. A path in education is another popular career, where graduates can teach biblical or ministerial studies at private and public colleges and universities. A student can also seek out a doctoral degree to open up advanced positions with even higher salaries.

Universities around the world offer these types of programs that launch many successful careers. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
