New Graduate Assistant Program

Oct 10, 2016 | Nicky Story

Each academic year a select number of UDTS seminary students in the Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Master of Arts in Mission and Discipleship (MAMD) programs will engage in vital programming with undergraduate students at the University of Dubuque. As the seminary students progress through their program of study, they will assume increasing responsibility for elements of student life, academic, and campus ministry programming to first year students, under the mentorship of faculty and staff. By graduation, these students will have a rich set of experiences and coursework in young adult ministry/faith formation to bring to the church, parachurch, or higher education. 

We will offer a limited number of graduate assistantships for this program which will provide full tuition remission (up to 25 credits per year for the MDiv and up to 20 credits per year for the MAMD) and on-campus housing. Given satisfactory academic progress, assistantships are renewable for four years for the MDiv degree and two years for the MA degree.

Applicants should possess:
  • Mature Christian faith
  • Passion for young adult ministry/faith formation, evidenced in previous experiences
  • Strong academic background
  • Recommendation of Christian leaders in their school or church
