Welcome to the Institute for Spirituality and Social Justice, where spirituality meets the pursuit of social justice. Our focus is not only on a spiritual awakening but also on preparing individuals with advanced degrees in theology and social justice to make impactful contributions to a more humane and just world.

We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of master's degrees, including our standout MA programs that delve deep into theology, ethics, spirituality, and more. Our online master's programs and online MA programs are specially designed for those seeking flexibility without compromising the depth of learning. These masters programs are perfect for both professional development and spiritual growth.

For those passionate about an advanced degree in theology, our MA in General Theology stands as a beacon. This, along with our concentration in Ethics and Spirituality, offers insights into world religions, spiritual resources, and the vast wisdom traditions from across the globe. We also specialize in Pastoral and Social Ministry, catering to varied interests such as Adult Ministry and Youth and Campus Ministry Track.

Recognizing the importance of professional development, we provide a myriad of opportunities beyond our master's degrees. From certificates to workshops, our offerings ensure that every student experiences a profound spiritual awakening while also being equipped with the tools to champion social justice in their respective fields.

If you're considering a master's degree in theology or any degree in theology, our synchronous Online Theology Degree options and varied course formats—whether online, evening, weekends, or condensed 2 to 8-week sessions—ensure every student finds a fit for their schedule and aspirations.
