You've heard God's call and are eager to answer. At Palm Beach Atlantic University, we are eager to help prepare you for the great journey the Lord has in store for you.
Beginning in January 2018, the Orlando Campus will offer the Master of Arts in Christian Studies in a delivery format that will enable working professionals the ability to take classes while also working full-time. Orlando classes will be offered in a Friday and Saturday format during five weekends out of the semester, with additional coursework, research, assignments, and online activities taking place during the weeks when classes are not in session. With the Orlando Campus conveniently located near I-4 and the Florida Turnpike, this mode of delivery will enable students living outside the Orlando area to take classes at the Orlando Campus and to complete their degree without having to relocate.
The MACS degree is designed to prepare those who are eager for an advanced seminary education to further their personal or vocational goals. While some studying for the MACS degree will be preparing for vocational ministry, others want to integrate an advanced theological education into their businesses, careers or lay ministries.
Our MACS degree is on the cutting edge of seminary education in several ways:
