Master of Religious Studies (M.R.S.)

For non-ministerial candidates desiring graduate theological training, WRS offers a Master Religious Studies. This program is designed so that a student attending two evening classes per week can complete the course in three years. One may enter the evening school in any term. Unlike the other Masters degrees, the M.R.S. is designed to be terminal degree for evening school students only. Substitutions for the required courses are permitted only with faculty approval.

Students holding the M.R.S. who desire to continue their studies toward another WRS degree may transfer the courses they have taken which have identical course numbers to those required in their new program. The other M.R.S. courses (#143, #243, #341, #342, and #441) will be considered as elective credit.
