Graduate Programs

Toccoa Falls College Division of Graduate Studies is proud to present two outstanding programs designed to inspire, challenge, and empower you through the inner workings of the Holy Spirit to be prepared for the professional opportunities God brings into your life.

 

The Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership develops marketplace professionals with advanced organizational knowledge, skills, and research capabilities for service in leadership roles in business, government, non-profit, ministerial, or educational settings by integrating the pursuit of  truth with godly character.

A graduate of the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) will be equipped to:

  • Demonstrate in-depth knowledge of theories and scholars of leadership, organizational culture and communications, and an awareness of the application of these principles from a biblical worldview perspective.
  • Integrate learning from the course materials in critical thinking, problem solving and decision making in their own leadership contexts.
  • Evaluate from a biblical perspective the specific skills, competencies and points of view needed by leaders and professionals in their field.
  • Discover, apply, and appraise leader skills, theories, and techniques essential for leading efficient and effective teams.
  • Identify, investigate, and critically evaluate academic research on leadership and organizational behavior.
  • Demonstrate, explain, and facilitate ethical reasoning and decision making in organizational leadership based on a biblical worldview, personal ethics and integrity, social responsibility, moral character, and a strong work ethic.

Options exist for concentrations in:

MANAGEMENT

Additional courses to focus on specific managerial aspects of business leadership while gaining the benefit of the broader MAOL.

MINISTRY

Courses that specifically address and prepare church, non-profit, and faith-based organizational leaders for the challenges faced in leadership beyond the theological preparation they may have already received.

INTERCULTURAL STUDIES

Courses to add a deeper understanding of the unique skills necessary for missions, mission organizational leadership, international non-profit development and for enhancing networking and partnership skills across the globe.

SPORT MANAGEMENT

Courses designed to sharpen management skills of sports facilities, events, and athletic organizations, as well as navigating sports communications, marketing, and the use of new technologies.

 

The Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) develops fully-licensed clinicians with the skills and knowledge to provide ethical, competent, and compassionate therapy for individual, marriages, and families within a multicultural, integrated Christian framework.

A short, non-licensure study option is also available as a 15 credit-hour (5 courses) Graduate Certificate in Marriage and Family Counseling.

Students in these programs will:

  • Acquire in-depth knowledge of the theories, theorists, research and diagnosis methodologies through the use of case studies, development of problems, and other techniques specific to MFT.
  • Appreciate the importance of employing global awareness and the understanding of diverse cultures and perspectives when conducting therapy.
  • Analyze and apply course material in critical thinking, case conceptualization, problem solving, and decision making consistent with a biblical worldview.
  • Demonstrate specific skills and competencies in working with individuals, couples, and families in a compassionate manner.
  • Identify, investigate, and synthesize academic research on relevant topics in the MFT field.
  • Demonstrate, explain, and facilitate ethical reasoning and decision making in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.

 

We pray that TFC will be God’s instrument for your development. We hope to prepare you to be “equipped for every good work” (II Timothy 3:17). Come. Pursue excellence. Be the agents of change.
