On the new Master of Arts in Spirituality
Merrimack’s Master of Arts in Spirituality program prepares candidates for a life of spiritual exploration, engagement and service. As a degree candidate, you will acquire the theological knowledge and ministerial experience you need to enrich your own faith, and to support others in their spiritual journey.
In today’s complex world, there is a growing need for lay ministers who are equipped to help others connect more deeply with their spiritual lives. Whether serving as pastoral ministers or chaplains, social workers or mental health providers, spiritual leaders help people better navigate personal and societal challenges. To help people enhance their spiritual life, lay ministers must have a strong foundation of interfaith knowledge, along with outstanding interpersonal and counseling skills. Our advanced degree in Spirituality will provide you with these vital capabilities—and more.
