Residential Program

The Master of Arts in Worship Studies program is designed to equip worship leaders to better serve the church as skilled, passionate leaders of worship. In order to adapt worship theory to the local church, students receive  training in qualitative and quantitative research methods. Worship students are also taught to minister in a variety of evangelical worship cultures with skill and expertise. Many courses are taught by partner faculty drawn from top Christian leaders in worship music, songwriting and arranging. A thesis is required.
