This is an exciting time at Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) as we seek to train extraordinary leaders for service in the Kingdom. We have programs of study designed for someone who desires to be involved in vocational ministry. We also have a growing list of programs for someone who desires to serve God in a non-traditional ministry setting. We hope that you will join us in the adventure of impacting the world by transforming ordinary people into extraordinary Christian leaders.
The heart and passion of MACU’s academic program is the four-year Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. With the realization that some students have academic goals beyond MACU we also offer an associate degree that can be completed in 2 years and a certificate in Family Life Education that can be completed in approximately 2 years.
The four-year degree programs, the B.A. and the B.S., require at a minimum 120 semester hours of credit. The principal difference between the B.A. and the B.S. degrees is that the B.A. requires the study of a foreign language. In keeping with the mission of MACU, every four-year degree program in the School of Undergraduate Studies requires a major in Bible and Theology. Dependent upon the program of study, students will either complete a 50-hour Biblical Exposition major or a 30-hour Biblical Studies major. In the School of Professional Studies every degree program requires at least a minor in Biblical Studies. For the B.A. and the B.S. degrees, at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the required semester hours must be taken at MACU.
Nearly all of the baccalaureate degree programs require a student to complete an internship requirement. Working with a local congregation, organization, or institution, the student will learn first hand with the guidance of a field mentor and faculty advisor. Depending upon the program of study, three to six semester credit hours may be earned.
Whether it is in the classroom or through a supervised practical experience “in the real world,” MACU is committed to providing a quality academic program to train extraordinary leaders to serve in career or volunteer Christian service. If you have questions or concerns about your academic program, please feel free to stop by the Academic Affairs Office. Again, welcome to MACU.
