Bellarmine University offers the Master of Arts in Spirituality degree in partnership with the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. The degree requires 30 graduate credits and is offered in a cohort model over a two-year period. In June of each year, a new cohort of 10-12 matriculated students begins the program with a 4-credit “Introductory Seminar in Spirituality.” A 4-credit “Practicum in Spirituality” and a 4-credit “Integrating Seminar in Spirituality” are also integral and required for the degree. The remaining 18 credits are elected from the selection of 3-credit courses.
Courses are taught by faculty from the Theology Department at Bellarmine University and from Louisville Seminary; courses meet on both campuses. Students are expected to complete the 30-credit degree in two years with studies on a part-time basis. The MA in Spirituality program can be added to any of Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary’s programs; see the registrar for details.
The purpose of the degree program is to provide an ecumenical and collaborative teaching-learning experience that focuses on Christian spirituality.
Students in the program come from Catholic and Protestant communities of faith and are laypersons and clergy engaged in a variety of ministries.
The Master of Arts in Spirituality may also be combined with the Master of Divinity, the Master of Arts (Religion), or the Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy.
