Master of Arts in Global Service

Prepare for multicultural ministry.

As our society becomes more global and connections between cultures grow, many Christian leaders have a desire to expand their knowledge and reach.

ACU’s online Master of Arts in global service is designed to equip you for ministries that require living, working and communicating in the intercultural contexts typical of today's global society. Drawing upon theology, sociology, anthropology, history and communication theory, the M.A. in global service challenges you to analyze contemporary global concerns, formulate Christian perspectives and explore solutions to intercultural challenges.

Our innovative online program includes four one-week campus residencies; web-based course work mixed with face-to-face learning that creates an incredibly flexible educational experience.
