Course Overview

To be effective in your calling

A fully online degree, MA Interdisciplinary Studies program by Marina Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Religion (MCISR), with our partner institution, offers the academic groundwork to prepare Christian leaders to be enriched in core Biblical principles and theological reflection. This degree helps students to be effective leaders in their context with a rigorous course work in Biblical and theological studies with a practical component. The continuous assessments will let students find personal meaning in learning and the final creative project helps relating their learning to lived reality by engaging people for the project.
