To Earn the Master of Arts

This program has been designed to provide you with a comprehensive Biblical education in an accelerated online four-module educational format. The 32 credit hour requirement for the Master of Arts program is fulfilled by completing four projects in the Major Concentration of your choosing. 

Atlantic Coast offers a Master of Arts Degree in:

  • Biblical Studies
  • Christian Counseling
  • Pastoral Ministry
  • Theology

Each M.A. Concentration contains courses which require Projects related to two textbook and audio lectures which will be located in the Online Resource Room . The audio lectures are also available for personal ministry use. In addition to the courses in the Concentration, there is a Master of Arts Summative Examination. This is a written summation of the learning experience in the M.A. concentration, and is to include how this M.A. experience will be applied by the graduate in life and ministry.

Sample M.A. Program Syllabus:

Project One

Create a two-level annotated outline for the two textbooks that detail what you consider to be the most important elements or sections in the book.

Project Two

Write a Review Essay for each textbook. Your Review Essays should be not less than 750 words each. 

Project Three

Write a Response (reaction) Essay for each textbook. These should be not less than 750 words.

Project Four

Use at least 300 words to describe your learning experience in the course. Include how you will use what you have learned in your professional and/or personal life.

Summative Examination

The Summative Exam is an “open book” summation of your learning experience in the M.A. degree program. Using your textbook outlines, essays, and notes from the audio lectures, write a summation of your educational experience in no less than 1,500 words.

These program objectives are in compliance with the federal government administration’s request to educational institutions to develop Fast Track degree programs which will place qualified persons into the workplace more rapidly than outdated traditional programs. We believe this also applies to ministry.

The Atlantic Coast Mission is to provide you with the courses, technology, and academic support to ensure that you obtain the specific knowledge, skills, and credentials to maximize your potential for the demands of the 21st Century.
