Bachelor of Science, Ministerial Leadership: Missional Leadership (Four-Year Plan)  

 

The Bachelor of Science in Ministerial Leadership – Missional Leadership track degree program prepares students for ministry leadership—in local churches, faith-based non-profit organizations, and other ministry contexts—through an interdisciplinary curriculum of courses in foundational core (i.e., English, psychology, math, science, etc.), Bible, theology, ministry, and ministry practicum. The final 18 hours of the major core focuses on global, entrepreneurial, strategic, and innovative missional leadership skills that can be applied in a variety of missional contexts (i.e., global non-profit organizations, missionary ministry, local church ministry, etc.).

 

This degree program allows students the flexibility of completing program requirements through a combination main campus, online, and/or partner site courses. In order to create a global learning experience and connect students learning in a variety of contexts, the Missional Leadership courses (MISS 3013, MISS 3023, MISS 3033, MISS 3043, MISS 3053, MISS 3063) are only taught as online courses. 

*Note: Students taking courses online outside of the State of Florida may be subject to additional Foundational Core requirements for degree completion. State-specific requirements are specified in the SEU Catalog. Your Academic Advisor is available to help integrate these additional courses into your plan.
