Liberty University’s Master of Arts in Educational Ministries (Online) can help provide you with a strong scriptural and academic foundation for engaging in ministry and Christian education. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


Throughout this program, you can develop the skills you need to teach in Christian schools, oversee church-based educational programs such as Sunday school, serve as the director of family or discipleship ministries for your congregation, and much more!

Liberty University ’s Master of Arts in Educational Ministries (Online) covers many of the same core topics as our Master of Religious Education (MRE) program. However, while the MRE is 60 credit hours long, the master’s in educational ministries is only 36 credits – allowing you to finish your degree sooner while still receiving essential training in Christian ministry and pedagogy.

At Liberty, we’ve designed our online educational ministries degree with your success in mind. Our professors are excited to come alongside you as you seek to better serve the people in your church and community. By studying under faculty who have years of experience in education and professional ministry, you can become equipped to promote spiritual growth and provide sound biblical teaching in local churches, Christian schools, and parachurch settings.
