You can choose any four of the modules that are on offer.

The MA in Transformational Leadership

You must complete the modules listed below as well as two other modules

  • Enabling Leadership
  • Transformational Leadership in Practice

Both programmes require you to complete 4 modules plus a dissertation. There are other exit awards available for students who are not able to complete the full MA.

These programmes aim to enable you to:

  • engage with issues of theology, leadership, ministry, and culture;
  • enhance your skills in a range of areas of ministry and leadership;
  • be open to personal transformation.

Each module has a significant biblical focus and they are rooted in the context of contemporary culture. You will be enabled to apply the insights of Scripture and other disciplines to your ministry/leadership context.
These programmes are validated by York St John University.
