Admission to Master of Ministry — SGCS
In addition to the General Admissions Requirements, the applicant must:
- Possess a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university with a grade point average of 2.5 or better (4.0 scale).
- Have successfully completed a minimum of 15 undergraduate hours in religion, Bible, or theology. Students whose undergraduate preparation in religion is deficient may apply for conditional admission, if they satisfy the other requirements. Rules and deadlines for making up the deficiency will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
- Demonstrate the ability to succeed in the graduate-level Master of Ministry program, as evidenced by two or three recommendations -- one from a pastor or other spiritual adviser and one from a person who can speak to the applicant’s academic capacity. If pastor or spiritual adviser is different from the student’s supervisor in ministry, the student is encouraged to include a third recommendation from a ministry supervisor such as, in the case of a Nazarene applicant, the District Superintendent.
- Be actively involved in church ministry.
Note: the Master of Ministry/Spanish program requires fluency in the Spanish language in addition to the above.
