Customized Learning Experiences

Learning experiences in Kairos are built around an invitation for you to explore some aspect of your vocation, Christian thought and practice, or the human experience. You have the opportunity to progress through these learning experiences in the way that is most helpful to you in your context and vocation. You also have the opportunity to work with faculty members to create entirely new or customized learning experiences that help you develop vocational excellence and expertise.

Contextual Project in a Unique Areas of Focus

As part of your Master of Arts program, you will complete a contextual project in which you integrate your learning, theology, and practice. In some cases, students complete a research-oriented thesis in preparation for future doctoral work while in other cases, students complete a project related to their vocational context after conducting research on that context. You will work with your mentor team to customize or concentrate in any area of ministry.  The choice is yours!

Contextual Learning

Throughout the program, you have the opportunity to work with your mentor team to design learning experiences that are entirely shaped by what you are doing (or will do) in your current or desired vocational context. Are you planting a church? Building a youth ministry program? Developing curriculum? Then use that in your program! Are you managing finances? Writing code? Building homes? Developing software? Leading teams? Then use that in your program! If an experience or project is connected to what it means to flourish in your vocation, then use it to make progress in your program!
