The Master of Arts in Applied Theology is a two-year equivalent program (42 semester hour units) offering specialization in leadership for church staff, parachurch organizations and nonprofit organizations.
The program provides a framework for such leadership through basic biblical and theological studies, spiritual formation and cross-cultural engagement. The program offers several tracks for the development of leadership skills for specialized settings through course work, practica and in-ministry learning opportunities.
The distinctive feature of Multnomah’s MAAT program is that it parallels the Doctor of Ministry program. MA students in this program take the same core seminars as the doctoral students. MA students in this program have the ministry experience of the DMin students, but lack the academic credentials to gain admission into the doctoral degree program.
