About

The Master of Arts in Religion offered by Mount Saint Mary's University is ideal for you if you have always wanted to enhance your career with a graduate degree in religious studies or further your understanding of the impact that religion has in the world.

Overview

The Master of Arts in Religion offered by Mount Saint Mary's University is now composed of two distinct, though mutually informative, concentrations. The first concentration is in “Contextual Theology,” and the second is in “The Study of Religions.” 

  • Religious Studies with a Concentration in Contextual Theology

In establishing a concentration in Contextual Theology for the Master of Arts in Religious Studies, we asserted a simple (though often overlooked) claim in that all theologies are intimately influenced, and have the potential to influence, the socio-cultural and geo-political contexts in which they are immersed.

  • Religious Studies with a Concentration in The Study of Religions

The newly created Study of Religions concentration, within the Master of Arts in Religious Studies, is inherently interdisciplinary and interreligious, and employs social-scientific methods and theories to study religion.
