We are transitioning the Master of Arts in Transformative Leadership and Spirituality program to a new modality as of September 2020. We are no longer accepting new students for this program. Please see our announcement about these plans.

The Master of Arts in Transformative Leadership and Spirituality is a pioneering program designed for those engaged in leadership roles, serving in the public or private sector, or for those who want to deepen their understanding of how to live faithfully, and with integrity, in today’s multifaith and pluralistic world. Students learn to integrate the theory and practice of leadership and spirituality in ways meaningful to everyday life. “Transformative” refers to a transformation of consciousness that is reflected in outward action, and the curriculum supports that outcome.
