The Master of Arts in Public Ministry from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is a 50-credit hour program. Students can complete their degree as a residential student (primarily in-person courses on Garrett’s campus) or as a hybrid student (primarily online courses). All courses will be offered in-person and online with the exception of required in-person cohort retreats in August and January that will focus on orientation and formation.
Students in the MA in Public Ministry degree take a combination of foundation courses, public ministry courses, and open elective courses. With their concentration electives, students can choose a concentration track in Ecological Regeneration, Racial Justice, or Child Advocacy. A student may also propose a concentration, the approval of which depends on relevant course availability. Open electives can be used for additional courses in a concentration area, to complete ordination requirements for deacons in The United Methodist Church, or to meet a combination of objectives.
