Accelerated Master of Divinity

When a student has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies or Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Counseling, Mid-America believes that they have acquired the basic biblical knowledge necessary to move forward into the Master of Divinity program. This means that Accelerated Master of Divinity students are not required to repeat all of the basic courses on the Master level that they have already completed on the Bachelor level, and they can move more quickly into their desired area of concentrated study. (Some courses do repeat; with the languages and preaching/teaching the administration of Mid-America feels that repetition on a higher level has benefit.)


Each Accelerated Master of Divinity concentration consists of 60 total credit hours. Within that total, the Pastoral Ministry and Biblical Counseling programs also incorporate hands-on practicums.
