ONe-Year Master's Program

In Fall 2015, the University of Dubuque launched its first entirely online master’s program, the Master of Arts in Christian Leadership. The program – a fully-accredited 30-credit degree, which can be earned in one year – grounds students in the knowledge of the Christian Scriptures and the Church’s theological tradition, and equips women and men for missional service and leadership in their chosen vocations. The degree program draws on the strengths of faculty from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary and the Department of Religion, Philosophy, and History of the undergraduate college.
