Mercer University is adding two new master’s degree programs next year.
Starting in June, the Macon campus will offer a Master of Athletic Training degree. The program is six semesters and 70 credit hours and includes clinical experience with Mercer athletic programs.
Next fall, students can start working toward a Master of Theological Studies at the school’s Atlanta campus. That program is 49 hours and two years, and students can choose to concentrate on Bible, history/theology, ethics or practical theology.
The university’s Board of Trustees approved the new programs during its homecoming meeting.
