Master of Arts (MA)
Our Master of Arts programs will prepare you to be scholars, teachers, pastors and leaders who integrate spiritual formation with theological knowledge and practical experience. You’ll build skills for spiritual growth, intercultural competence, contextual analysis and interpretation, leadership practice, and peacebuilding.
These programs prepare you for a wide range of ministry opportunities: teaching congregational faith formation, working toward transformative peacebuilding, and drawing on the Anabaptist tradition in service of your current and future communities, to name a few.

Students and faculty share why and how they discerned attending their AMBS program
“I was looking for the school in the world where I could bring together my commitment to peace-building and justice-seeking with theological insight. I did an exhaustive search of the schools in the world, and I found that AMBS was doing what I wanted to be doing. In short, the past almost three years of my time at seminary have been a time of academic and spiritual formation that helps me to continue to grow and develop a capacity to resist the social constructs that divide God’s people and foster hostility.”
Henok T. Mekonin of Nazreth, Oromiya region, Ethiopia (Master of Arts: Theology and Peace Studies, 2021)
