Ministry Electives



Associate of Science in Worship Arts

Program Objectives

The Worship Arts concentration is designed to help you accomplish three goals:

  1. You will have a basic understanding of key music theory concepts and terminology.
  2. You will be able to cultivate an environment for personal worship and corporate worship.
  3. You will grasp how to utilize and operate the various tools currently available for enhancing the quality of the worship service.


The Worship Arts concentration is combined with the General Education core and the Bible core to complete the program requirements of an Associate of Science degree. The concentration is made up of four components:

  1. Christian Ministries Core, a series of courses which give you exposure to a range of ministry fields and develop your ministry skills and outlook in a systematic way.
  2. Worship Arts Core, a series of courses designed to teach basic skills for anyone working in the field of worship arts.
  3. Guided Electives, a “menu” of courses, any of which would prove valuable in the field of worship arts, from which you can choose based on your personal goals and interests.
  4. Ministry Electives, an opportunity for you to diversify your curriculum by taking courses in a ministry field other than worship arts or to augment your worship arts degree by taking additional courses in that field.
