  • Master of Arts in Ministry: Anglican Studies Concentration

“The Anglican Studies concentration immerses students in a critical engagement with the distinctives of Anglican theology, history, and spirituality. Several dimensions of faith and practice are explored across the coursework, including: tensions within the contemporary Anglican Communion; the rise of non-Western and evangelical expressions of Anglicanism; the place of Anglican thought in current theological debate; and the intersections between Anglicanism and other forms of Protestant Christianity.

Program Design

The Master of Arts in Ministry: Anglican Studies Concentration was designed with four unique sections:

  • Bible, History, and Theology Curriculum
  • Spiritual Formation
  • Anglican Studies
  • Personal Development

Churches face many complex issues in today’s contemporary culture. This program is designed to educate and prepare ministry students for ministry leadership. Students are educated with sound theology, enriched through spiritual formation, and equipped with ministry skills.

Richmont Graduate University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award master’s degrees.

The Anglican Studies Concentration was developed in partnership with the Mission School of Ministry (MSM) in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Students from MSM are eligible to transfer a certain amount of coursework into Richmont’s program.
