Master of Arts in Ministry
The MA program at Phoenix Seminary gives an opportunity for working professionals in both ministry and secular applications to study scripture and ministry skills without the impact of a typical full-time educational schedule. Programs are offered as a hybrid of classroom and online, with our Biblical and Theological Studies degree available as 100% online if desired.
