GRADUATE ASSISTANT PROGRAM IN
YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY/FAITH FORMATION
Beginning in the fall of 2016, a select number of students in the Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Master of Arts in Missional Christianity (MAMC) programs will receive a graduate assistantship to engage in vital programming with undergraduate students at the University of Dubuque. As these graduate assistants progress through their program of study, they will assume increasing responsibility for elements of student life, academic, and campus ministry programming to first year students, under the mentorship of faculty and staff. By graduation, graduate assistants will have a rich set of experiences and coursework in young adult ministry/faith formation to bring to the church, parachurch, or higher education.
The graduate assistantship provides full tuition remission (up to 25 credits per year for the MDiv and up to 20 credits per year for the MAMC) and on-campus housing. Given satisfactory academic progress, assistantships are renewable for four years for the MDiv degree and two years for the MA degree.
Applicants should possess:
Mature Christian faith
Passion for young adult ministry/faith formation, evidenced in previous experiences
Strong academic background
Recommendation of Christian leaders in their school or church
