About

Our new MATS program responds to the complex realities of our global context through academic exploration. Our current world highlights the need for more nuanced engagements around the role of religion in political, legal, and social spheres.

Overview

Students are invited to attend to the question of how we theologically and ethically engage the changing world, especially as it shapes and is shaped by religious identity in new ways. Drawing on faculty training and their cutting edge research, students will learn to think critically about faith, culture, and ethics in relation to vocation, texts, and contemporary issues. 

MATS degree holders may use this degree in non-profit leadership and other non-traditional ministries. The MATS often enhances work the graduate is already doing, as well as preparing students for new vocations as public theologians.

Funding

Balancing the call from God with the realities of financial responsibility is no easy task. It may seem daunting, but you are not alone! For two centuries seminarians at Union Presbyterian Seminary have balanced these two realities of theological education with the help of the Financial Aid staff.Beginning with the 2017-18 academic year, scholarships for full time students will include 100% tuition aid.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
