Religion (M.A.)


Trevecca's Graduate Religion Program is designed to provide exceptional academic quality, emphasizing practical applications of course work. The format makes the program accessible to those involved in the ongoing life and ministry of the local church. The Master of Arts in Religion is a 33 hour program with a choice of two areas of concentration.

The program is tied closely to the Church intentionally. The program works to support the church even as the church supports the University. The faculty is committed to a close relationship with Jesus Christ as well as to academic excellence. The program equips those who have answered the call to service in the Kingdom of God.
