Transformational Leadership

Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership


54 credits, 2 years

Students in our Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership (MATL) come from various life stages, experience-levels and backgrounds such as corporations, nonprofits, churches and faith-based organizations. Here at Seattle University, we dare to move beyond the black and white. Instead of seeing divides between the personal, professional, spiritual, religious, secular and faith-based, we approach the world as one integrated whole. We explore concepts together, such as meaning-making, justice, peace building, earth ethics and social analysis; and create leaders that identify, create and execute a plan for change.

Unique Components

Juris Doctor/Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership (JD/MATL) 

The Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership offers a dual JD/MATL degree in partnership with the Seattle University School of Law. The MATL/JD Joint degree program is designed to allow students interested in obtaining both the Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership (MATL) and the Juris Doctor degrees simultaneously. This allows students to obtain both degrees in less time than if they were obtained independently. The MATL/JD program prepares students to become a positive force for social justice in a dynamic world. Through the joint degree program, specified courses taken within the School of Theology and Ministry will count toward the JD degree and specified courses taken in the School of Law will count toward the MATL degree. Students are required to be admitted separately to both the School of Law and the School of Theology and Ministry at Seattle University.
