Reason #2: A High-Quality Advanced Program that Meets Diverse Needs
Whether you are a pastor, a church worker, or an active layperson, the MATS and MMIN programs offer an advanced course of study to meet your vocational and educational goals. They also train today's leaders for thoughtful ministry from a Christian perspective.
Reason #3: A Flexible Schedule
You can complete the MATS and MMIN programs while you remain in your current position. The courses are structured using a three-day class format and a six-week evening course.
The MMIN can be completed in less than two years. An independent study, supervised field study and Israel study trip are also courses that can be worked into this program.
Reason #4: An Academically Sound Curriculum
The courses are academic and practical. Bethel College faculty, as well as experts from other leading evangelical institutions, teach in an interactive, concentrated format, giving students an opportunity to integrate the course material and to work with other students.
Reason #5: It Helps You Meet Future Educational Goals
Bethel's MATS/MMIN programs provide a foundation for further educational goals. They transfer toward a M. Div. (three years) at seminaries or toward various other two-year masters programs. Students have gone on to study at Asbury, Fuller, Gordon Cornwell, AMBS, Trinity, etc.
