Master of Arts in Global Leadership/Master of Science in Kinesiology
Global Leadership consists of connecting with people in other cultures and societies around the globe and finding ways to exert a positive influence on their lives. Learning the intercultural skills and understanding multiethnic dynamics are crucial skills for leadership in today’s increasingly multicultural and multiethnic environments.
The purpose of the Master of Science in Kinesiology program is to equip candidates for Christian servant leadership in the multi-faceted areas of Kinesiology, equipping them with intercultural and leadership skills equal to integrating their Christian faith and witness as they make significant contributions to the human endeavor. The Master of Science in Kinesiology is a specialized STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program.
The dual degree will prepare students to better manage the wide variety of global ministry challenges associated with sports ministry, fitness, wellness, physical therapy, and health care providers.
In order to pursue a Dual Master’s Degree program, the applicant must apply to, meet the existing admission requirements for, and be accepted into each of the master’s degrees which comprise the dual degree program.
Note: Church Membership Requirement (for admission into the EDD in Educational Leadership—all concentrations, PHD in Leadership Studies’ Ministry Concentration, Master’s Ministry Degrees, and Advanced Ministry Certificate Programs): Within the last 12 months, the applicant must have been an active member of a Christian church that holds Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who holds solely the Old Testament and the New Testament as sacred Scripture.
Graduate School of Ministry Portfolio
Dallas Baptist University’s Ministry Degree Programs seek to provide an academic experience that enables all candidates to engage and impact Christian Ministries of the 21st century. The Portfolio is designed to be an individualized collection of documents that represent the candidate’s preparation for future ministry positions, demonstrating the candidate’s ongoing knowledge, skills, and ministry experiences.
The Graduate School of Ministry provides candidates the opportunity for self-reflection through the compilation of documents in an electronic Portfolio. Documents in the Portfolio may include Signature Assignments, Resume, and Philosophy of Ministry among others.
Throughout the program, the candidate will collect designated documents and upload them to the Portfolio within Blackboard. The Portfolio will be used to assess development as the candidate proceeds through their designated ministry program. It is the candidate’s responsibility to meet with their GSOM Program Director to discuss the Portfolio required documents prior to graduation.
