What Sets a Master’s in Theology Apart?
If you’ve ever considered pursuing a Master’s in Theology, you’ve likely been exposed to the benefits of obtaining a higher level of theological education. A Master’s in Theology expands on theological knowledge and prepares graduates for a variety of teaching, community, and ecclesial positions.
Gonzaga’s online Master of Arts in Theology and Leadership (MATL) program provides graduates with the foundation and knowledge of biblical and theological studies, but also equips them with leadership skills that reach far beyond that.
The MATL degree program teaches students how to interpret texts and theological arguments and apply theological themes in a contemporary context. Additionally, students learn how to analyze organizational behavior and leadership models, focusing on integrating Ignatian spirituality and leadership formation.
The leadership aspect of our program is the differentiating factor that sets our MATL apart from the rest. Leadership is a valuable skill and is highly sought after in all fields including education and ministry. Through courses like Organizational Leadership, students develop skills that empower them to become effective leaders in any setting.
All MATL program curricula promote the Jesuit value of cura personalis, or care of the whole person. This means that in addition to educational development, students’ spiritual and emotional growth is fostered and encouraged. The Ignatian core values of leadership, social justice, intercultural communication and reconciliation are also incorporated into the curriculum. Upon graduation, our students haven’t just gained an education, they’ve learned important traits and skills to enrich their lives and better those around them.
