Interdisciplinary Degrees Offered by the School of International Service

MA International Peace and Conflict Resolution/MTS

Degree Requirements (72 credit hours)

The Master of Arts in International Peace and Conflict Resolution and Master of Theological Studies dual degree program combines training in international peace and conflict resolution with the theological study. Ordained and lay persons alike benefit from the study of these highly complementary disciplines. Students are required to complete a minimum of 30 credits for the Master of Arts degree at the School of International Service and a minimum of 42 credits for the Master of Theological Studies at Wesley Theological Seminary - for a total of 72 hours - to successfully earn both degrees.

Students must apply and be admitted separately to each program. Students may count up to 12 credit hours from Wesley toward the M. A. in International Peace and Conflict Resolution. With SIS faculty approval, 9 credit hours fulfill the related field requirement, and 3 credit hours count toward the research requirement. Please refer to the Wesley Theological Seminary catalog for a description of the degree requirements for the Master of Theological Studies, or call the Admissions Office at 202-885-8659.
