HSP Offers New Degree Program in Fall 2016
Holy Spirit College is pleased to announce a new degree program: the Master of Religious Education (MRE) program.
The MRE program is aimed toward preparing degree candidates to assume roles of ministerial leadership in the professional specialization of religious education. By working toward fulfillment of the degree requirements, students will acquire knowledge and skills needed to fulfill the task of the religious educator with great competence both in the parish and school settings.
Holy Spirit’s MRE program involves the study of both Catholic sacred theology and of the principles, methods, and procedures unique to the task of the professional religious educator. The theology coursework enables MRE students to investigate the religious heritage of the Catholic tradition, while the practicum component serves to exemplify how religious educators mediate this tradition within particular contexts. Courses are taught by clergy and lay professors who will instill a firm theological foundation, impart professional skills, and assist in the personal and spiritual growth of their students.
