The M.C.M. degree is a 37 unit campus-based degree. It is a specialized program taught with a Korean translation, equipping men and women for church music ministry. Students are equipped with a high degree of professional music skills for ministry within the life of the Church. Additionally, students develop proficiency in technical and musical skills for churches of all sizes.
The M.C.M. degree provides a uniquely well-rounded curriculum by requiring a core set of courses in ministry, in academic/theoretical music, and in practical/applied music. At the completion of their degree, graduates will be able to plan and lead a worship service, supervise a church ministry effectively, articulate a strong biblical and historical foundation for worship and service in the church, explain and model core biblical values for Christian leadership. Also, graduates will be able to show a high level of performance skill including conducting, demonstrate familiarity with modern musical technologies, strategize effectively to use music in evangelism, and identify at least three significant areas of personal spiritual growth resulting from the program.
In addition to the admissions requirements described for all graduate students, admission to the M.C.M. program requires an undergraduate degree in Music (B.A., B.M., B.M.E., B.C.M., etc.) from an accredited university, or career experience deemed equivalent.
