The Master of Arts in Religion is offered by Mount Saint Mary's University.


The Graduate Religious Studies program at the Mount offers students the unique opportunity to work with professors deeply committed to student success, willing to accommodate the schedules of working students, and support a variety of areas of theological inquiry.  Rooted within the broader mission of MSMU LA and the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, a mission that calls for us be advocates for social justice and change, our program emphasizes praxis-based theories and methods in religion and theology, which allows students to be consistently immersed in the questions and concerns of particular communities and use these experiences to shape their own theological questions and responses.
