Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS)
I will continue to practice as Mental Health Social Worker in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales, Australia. Thanks for the opportunity to study at Westminster. It has been an excellent opportunity to establish some foundational theology.

The MATS degree has been a perfect complement to my MAC degree and is already proving hugely useful. Westminster has been a very special experience for me, and […]
