At this level the student begins to work in a more independent fashion and begins to pinpoint their ministerial focus and how it affects the larger Wiccan community. Acceptance into the program requires a Bachelor’s of Ministry from Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary or a Bachelor’s Degree in a related field and/or a verifiable Wiccan Second Degree that demonstrates the students mastery of the WSTS core Bachelor’s Curriculum. If the candidate does not have a Bachelor’s Degree, then they can apply to enter the joint BM/MM Program, which will allow them to attain their Bachelor’s of Ministry from WSTS at the same time as they work on their Master’s of Ministry. All candidates will be required to take and pass the Wiccan Skills Assessment before acceptance into the program.
The Master’s study takes a minimum of two years to complete. Students need 48 credit hours total to graduate. This consists of the core required classes, field internship and the focus area coursework.
Field Internship hours will be required in addition to the above course requirements. The Field internship is overseen by the Seminary, but it is up to the student to arrange an acceptable placement. The Seminary reserves the right to accept or reject any proposed placement. The Seminary will assist in facilitating the student finding an acceptable placement.
Each Master’s Candidate is expected to perform sacred service with the Undergraduate program of WSTS. This includes facilitating workshops, programs, classes, and activities on the Second Life® platform and in person.
