MA in Member Care - UK
Taught by experts in the field, Redcliffe College’s new MA in Member Care recognises the need to have a Biblical basis underpinning practice, as well as understanding cross-cultural perspectives and their effect on individuals and groups. Challenges such as crisis response and trauma debriefing will be addressed, and there is the opportunity to focus on a specific context or Member Care issue through an optional module.
This MA is available in flexible learning mode. Students complete the MA over 3-4 years, studying in a combination of three-week summer school residential intensives, and self-study with email support (on average 10-15 hours a week).
