The Master of Arts in Pastoral and Spiritual Care (MAPSC) is a professional master’s degree for those interested in specialization as chaplains or spiritual caregivers through health care organizations, hospice programs, religious organizations, hospital settings, prison ministries, retirement centers, or other institutions. This may include persons seeking ordination/consecration as a deacon or lay minister in many denominational traditions.
This degree can be combined with Iliff’s Master of Divinity degree for those interested in pastoral counseling or with the Master of Arts in Social Work through the University of Denver. It is also an important component for professional psychologists, psychiatrists, or other psychological clinicians interested in further training in spiritual care.
A special option exists for those in military chaplaincy, who have already earned their Master of Divinity degree. Please ask an admissions representative about our MAPSC for Military Chaplains option.
MAPSC – MSW Cooperative Program
A cooperative arrangement between Iliff School of Theology and The Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Denver allows qualified students to pursue concurrently the MAPSC with the Master of Social Work degree. The cooperative degree program offers students the opportunity to apply theological learning to social service settings. Each school allows students to transfer a predetermined number of credits from one degree program into the other, which allows students to complete both degrees in a shorter amount of time.
