Master of Arts in Public Leadership

The Master of Arts in Public Leadership (MAPL) at ULS will prepare you to be
theologically articulate, critically reflective, and practically skillful individuals capable of engaging with civil society and the wider world as leaders of social ministry and other public service organizations and agencies

The degree, normally a two-year program when taken full-time, requires a total of 51 credits. Core courses are available on both campuses in various formats: residential, hybrid, intensive, and online. However, required courses offered through partnership with Temple University may be available only in the Philadelphia area. If the degree is not completed within four years, the student must petition the faculty for continuance in the degree program.

Applicants to the MAPL program are required to have earned a Bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a regionally accredited college or university.
