This program is designed for students with a wide range of pursuits and career goals, from education and catechetics to preparation for a doctoral degree in religious studies, theology or a related field. Rooted in the Catholic and Franciscan tradition, the M.A. in Religious Studies is a 30-credit program particularly but not exclusively focused on Christianity in its many historical contexts and denominational aspects, and situated within contemporary local and global realities. The Professional Development Seminar is taken in the first semester and is designed to assess and assist readiness for graduate work in religious studies and to aid in examining personal and professional goals. A series of three 4-credit courses in scriptural studies, systematic theology, and church history lays a foundation for methodological application courses in those same areas, and for further elective courses suited to the students' needs and interests. In the final semester, a comprehensive examination, with oral and written components, completes the program; students with a program GPA of 3.7 or higher may opt for a 2-credit Thesis on a chosen topic in religious studies written under the direction of a faculty member in lieu of the comprehensive exam. M.A. in Religious Studies - Concentration in Ministry Option Students working in or preparing for church ministry may elect to pursue the M.A. in Religious Studies with a Concentration in Ministry by completing additional required courses designed to foster pastoral skills and understanding.

Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology

Cardinal Stritch University
Campus Part time 2 - 3  August 2017 USA Milwaukee

This program is designed for students with career interests in master's-level clinical practice or those who plan to obtain a Ph.D. or Psy.D. [+]

Best Masters of Arts (M.A) in the Milwaukee in the USA. This program is designed for students with career interests in master's-level clinical practice or those who plan to obtain a Ph.D. or Psy.D. The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Clinical Psychology program strives to develop competent healthcare providers who are critical thinkers, intelligent consumers of research, and skilled providers of psychological services in a variety of healthcare settings. Most graduates become employed as therapists, counselors, psychometricians, or other mental health-related positions. All courses integrate science and practice, with an emphasis on ethics and the roles culture, race, and gender play in assessment and therapy. This program manages to infuse scientific rigor into a master's-level training program. While the state of Wisconsin offers dozens of master’s-level counseling programs that prepare students to practice as LPCs, our degree program is the only master’s level clinical psychology program that is license eligible. Ours is a practice-based degree program in contrast to research-based Ph.D. programs: our students graduate with 600 hours of internship fieldwork, leaving the program as experienced, mature practitioners acclimated to real-world practice. Psychology applies analytical techniques to a humanistic subject matter. The philosophy of the profession is that if you are trained first and foremost as a scientist, you will be able to train yourself as necessary to adapt to unanticipated circumstances. It is a tremendous strength to possess the skills to research these situations, find techniques that have been validated to work, and train yourself to use them. Stritch... [-]

The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Teaching degree program is an accelerated, post-baccalaureate teacher certification program specifically designed to meet the needs of the returning adult student. With a dual emphasis on teacher certification in PreK-12 education and a master's degree that enhances the ability to apply theory to practice, this program allows graduate students to enter a new career in teaching while advancing professionally and academically. The M.A. in Teaching prepares students for teacher certification and a master's degree in elementary, middle or high school education. The program combines classroom instruction with field experience in PreK-12 schools. Completion of a full semester student teaching placement qualifies students to apply for a teaching license in their chosen area just 18 months after starting the program. The M.A. in Teaching program is available in Milwaukee and Madison. An integral aspect of both the certification process and master's degree coursework is the development of a professional portfolio. This portfolio will evolve through the course of the program and is designed to meet the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) requirements for teacher licensure and renewal. Currently licensed teachers who wish to add an elementary or secondary license can also do so through Stritch's M.A. in Teaching program. Licensed teachers can choose a “license only” or a “license with Master’s Degree” option in one of the M.A. in Teaching certification areas.
