Theology Matters and the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary have established a new Master of Arts program in Reformed Theology that is committed to teaching the Old and New Testament, classic texts valued by the Reformed tradition, and congregational ministry.
Teachers in this program are pastor-scholars whose knowledge has been tested in both academic and congregational settings.
The M.A. in Reformed Theology is a fully accredited, 36-hour degree offered in a hybrid format that includes both in-person and online instruction. This M.A. degree offers a pathway for those preparing for ordained or non-ordained leadership positions in the church or for those already serving in leadership positions, such as pastors, commissioned lay pastors (CLPs), transferring into a Presbyterian denomination or other, or advanced lay teachers.
The M.A. in Reformed Theology also provides a basic education for those pursuing graduate study in theology, philosophy, church history, and biblical studies.
A goal of this M.A. is to help raise up a new generation of ministers, especially for congregations in the Reformed-Presbyterian tradition.
