Dual Degree Program, MAML/M.Ed.


Jointly sponsored by the College of Ministry (COM) and the College of Education (COE), the Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership (MAML) and the Master of Education degree (M.Ed.) can be earned as a dual degree whereby students will enroll in both programs and at the completion of the dual degree program the student will be awarded two degrees. The following conditions apply to the MAML/M.Ed. dual degree program:

  • Students must be accepted into both degree programs in order to qualify for the dual degree.
  • Students enrolled in the dual degree program must take courses in the specified order and sequence in order to complete the requirements of both degree programs in a timely fashion. Students wishing to “reverse the order” of the program sequence by beginning with the M.Ed. program first will need to gain written approval from the Deans of both programs.
  • Students enrolling in the dual degree program must pay the appropriate tuition and fees corresponding to each degree program.
  • Students enrolled in the dual degree program must complete both programs in order to receive their degrees.
  • Because of faculty staffing, the COM and the COE reserve the right to impose limits on the numbers of dual degree candidates that can be accommodated at any one time.
  • Students enrolling in the dual degree program have a curricular overlap that reduces the dual degree credit hours by taking the program in dual degree configuration.
  • Students who follow the prescribed program of study may be able to complete the program in as little as 39 months.
  • Students who decide to withdraw from one of the programs have the option of completing the entire remaining degree program with no course reductions.

The dual degree completion will be as follows:

  • Students will subsequently enroll in the M.Ed. program and complete the degree program in its entirety.
  • Students will do an action research project that is interdisciplinary in scope but that meets the requirements of both the MAML and the M.Ed. program. In this case, the action research chair must be drawn from approved faculty from the COE. An additional committee member will be drawn from the COM. The COM faculty member is subject to the approval of the COE action research chair.

Potential Audience:

The MAML/M.Ed. may be desirable for individuals wishing to teach in a Christian school in the K-12 sector and incorporate a Christian world view and ministry mindset into the educational setting.
