Master Degree Programs

Graduate Programs

Graduate programs require 30 credit hours of study, which may be any combination of classroom study, assigned study, practicum, and/or research work as determined by the Dean.  In addition each candidate will be required to write an acceptable thesis or dissertation, prepared in accordance with school guidelines.

Masters programs are designed as professional studies for the full-time minister. Master level Degrees are not terminal, but rather preparation for Doctoral study.

The Master Program requires 30 hours above the Bachelor’s level + a 10,000 word thesis.

Master of Christian Counseling (M.C.C.)
Master of Theology  (Th.M) (for preachers only)

The 30 credits earned in a Master program may be used toward a Doctorate degree.
