Trinity Graduate School currently offers five master’s-level degrees at the Deerfield location.
The Master of Arts in Bioethics (MA/BE) is a 30-semester-hour degree that has many courses available in short-term, summer, or online, and/or independent study formats to accommodate professionals unable to relocate to the Deerfield Campus. The MA/BE is for those who wish to develop expertise in analyzing, addressing, and engaging contemporary ethical issues of life and health that face our current culture.
The MA in Leadership (MA/L), with emphases in nonprofit, organizational, and international leadership, equips students to assume leadership roles in marketplace, community, or ministry organizations.
Trinity Graduate School also offers two education degree programs on the Deerfield campus. The Master of Arts in Teaching (MA/T) is an accelerated, cohort-based program (offered one night per week) designed to meet the needs of adult, independent learners. The MA/T leads to teacher licensure in either elementary or secondary education. The MEd in Diverse Learning (MEd/DL) helps practicing teachers further their skills in meeting the needs of the various learners in their classrooms. This program is offered in hybrid format, with some class sessions in a face-to-face format in the evening and other sessions conducted online.
The Master of Arts in Athletic Training (MA/AT) degree consists of 75 credits of course work, and meets or exceeds all of the competencies and requirements set forth by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA). Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to sit for the national board certification examination administered by the Board of Certification (BOC).
