Master in Pastoral Studies in Spiritual Formation and Care

The Master in Pastoral Studies program acknowledges the important role that the laity plays in the life and health of thriving congregations.

This track seeks to respond to needs in various contexts – congregations, hospitals, and prisons – by preparing students in the program to engage the theological, biblical, and spiritual basis of formation and care. This program will culminate with a practicum in a chosen ministerial field and an integrative paper.

Courses include: Loss and Grief, Trauma and Recovery, Theology and Theological Languages, Care of Persons, Care of Worlds and more.
