Lay ministers working in variety of religious education contexts including diocesan schools, Parish Schools of Religion, R.C.I.A., and so forth work to promote within their students a sense of identity, reverence, and responsibility for life and the sacred. The Certificate in Religious Education provides educators with a broad and in-depth exploration of the field. The coursework combines the development of confidence and creativity in working out curricula and gives practice in crafting effective learning processes. Pursuing a Master of Religious Education degree provides individuals with a set of multi-disciplinary perspectives and methodologies to enrich their practice while at the same time earning a master’s degree from an institution with a long-standing reputation for excellence in education and ministerial formation.
The Master Religious Education (M.R.E.) is a 36-credit hour degree program. All courses are taken for graduate credit hours (crs), at the current tuition rate at LIM.
