Master of Arts in Spiritual and Social Transformation
The Master of Arts in Spiritual and Social Transformation (MASST) program engages questions and concerns at the intersection of spirituality and society. The energy of spirituality can be intensely personal, but it can also ripple through an entire community or society. Similarly, personal transformation can elevate us and draw us out of the mundane world, but also propel us back into the world with new-found desire to be agents of social change. This program examines conflicts, challenges, and movements that involve persons and societies. It integrates social and spiritual dimensions in order to equip the whole person for work in a variety of settings: congregational, public, and private, with the ability to focus on non-profit leadership, spiritual formation, history as argument and mediation, and public theology and witness.
Bethany’s MASST program consists of 36 credit hours (twelve 3-credit courses) and may be done as a residential student or through our distance education option.
