Master of Arts in Counseling Ministries

Life is sacred, and human problems are complex. Transformation requires wisdom, love and hope. That's why we offer a counseling degree with real meaning.

MTSO's MA in Counseling Ministries program is dedicated to equipping pastoral and professional counselors with knowledge and skills, broad theological foundations, and psychological and behavioral-sciences grounding. With an MTSO counseling degree, you'll be well prepared to help individuals, families, and communities find meaning, healing, transformation and growth. You will develop knowledge of major theories of counseling and psychotherapy. Beyond that, you'll learn to integrate psychological and behavioral sciences with wisdom from religious tradition.
