University of Dubuque Launches Online Master of Christian Leadership Degree
Feb 27, 2015 | Kristi Lynch
Mark Ward, vice president for academic affairs at the University of Dubuque, announced today that the University will launch its first entirely online master’s program, the Master of Arts in Christian Leadership, beginning fall semester, 2015.
The program – a fully-accredited 30-credit degree, which can be earned in one year – will root students in knowledge of the Christian Scriptures and the Church’s theological tradition, and will equip women and men for missional service and leadership in their chosen vocations. The degree program draws on the strengths of faculty from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary and the Department of Religion, Philosophy, and History of the undergraduate college.
Dr. Ward, who will teach courses in Christian Leadership in the program, said, “We are tremendously excited about this collaborative effort that capitalizes on the strengths of the entire University. The Theological Seminary has been teaching online for many years, and this degree allows the University to reach out to new constituencies across the nation and prepare Christians in all walks of life for deeper and more focused Christian witness.”
The University is currently receiving applications for the program, which begins in September, 2015. For more information contact Kimberly Burnett-Hackbarth at 563.589.3112 or KHackbarth@dbq.edu.
