The M.A.C.P. degree offers students the opportunity to reflect theologically upon practices of lay professional ministry or other Christian service in various Christian organizations. The degree introduces students to disciplined theological reflection as a means for enriching their Christian service in both the church and the world.
The hybrid learning environment offers M.A.C.P. students the best of both worlds. Six intensive residential sessions scheduled over the course of two years take place at Duke Divinity Schools campus in Durham, N.C. Students also engage in online learning comprising scheduled online classes and self-paced learning while actively engaged in ministry across the country. In this way, students are able to remain in ministry while also engaging in disciplined theological reflection.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
