About the degree
When speaking about the “beautiful profession" of teaching, Pope Francis said, "I encourage you to renew your passion for humanity — you cannot teach without passion! — in the process of formation, and to be witnesses of life and hope. Never, never close a door, open all of them wide, in order for the students to have hope ("Address to UCIIM," 3/14/15). Lay ministers working in a variety of religious education contexts work to promote within their students a sense of identity, reverence, and responsibility for life and the sacred. The Master of Religious Education degree provides educators with a broad and in-depth exploration of the field.
The coursework combines the development of confidence and creativity in working out curricula and gives practice in crafting effective learning processes. Pursuing a Master of Religious Education degree provides individuals with a set of multi-disciplinary perspectives and methodologies to enrich their practice while at the same time earning a master’s degree from an institution with a long-standing reputation for excellence in education and ministerial formation. This Religious Education program delivered by Loyola University New Orleans is offered both on-campus and online.
