The Creighton University Master of Arts in Ministry is a professional, ecclesial ministry formation program which incorporates graduate Christian Theology, Human and Personal Development, Spiritual Formation and Applied Ministerial skills through an online and on-campus hybrid methodology.

Intensive, week long seminar/professional development courses will be held on campus annually with online pastoral theology coursework throughout the rest of the year, and locally, nationally or internationally focused internships in applied ministry developed according to the student's interests and expectations for post graduate service to ecclesial communities.


The program remains organized to address the formation of lay men and women who want to prepare for professional ministry in the Catholic Church (including but not limited to Parish, Diocese, Campus Ministry, Hospital or Prison Chaplaincy etc.).  Ordained Deacons in the Catholic Church are warmly encouraged to apply as well.  Candidates for professional ministry within other Christian denominations are also most welcome in the program.
