About

Have you 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? It is with your future in mind that we are proud to announce an all-new program structure and curriculum crafted specifically for the Master of Arts in Religious Studies at Mount Saint Mary's University.

Overview

Through much research and study, we crafted a program that is in alignment and in continuity with the variety of institutions to which MSMU is accountable: The Mission of Mount Saint Mary’s University, the Spirit of the Founders (specifically as this Spirit is articulated through the Principles of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet), and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition.

The Master of Arts in Religious Studies is now composed of two distinct, though mutually informative, concentrations. The first concentration is in “Theology,” and the second is in “The Study of Religions.” Each concentration has a 36-unit requirement to degree, which can be completed in 2-3 years.
