The MA in Leadership, Theology & Society is a 24-month, cohort-based program designed to enable participants to remain in their current workplace while developing their leadership abilities. The program’s 36 credit hours include:
- Eight on-campus courses, delivered through four intensive two-week residences at Regent College in Vancouver, BC;
- A 24-month Supervised Workplace Immersion, in which students will be mentored and will have an opportunity to reflect on and develop their own leadership abilities;
- A Capstone Project, in which students will apply their learning from the program to a situation in their own workplace and reflect theologically on that experience; and
- A week-long Capstone Retreat, where students will gather to share their Capstone Projects and interact with Christian leaders from a variety of sectors.
The tuition for the MALTS program comes to $25,000. There is also an additional cost for the Capstone Retreat (TBD). Students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and meal costs. For more information on program costs and payment, see the Program FAQ page.
