Adonai Theological Seminary (ATS) is the graduate/postgraduate division of AICU, offering master's and doctoral degree programs in ministry and theology. ATS students have the option of selecting a degree concentration for their program. All master's and doctoral degree programs offered at ATS along with concentrations are listed below. Please find link to ATS catalog below at the bottom of the programs. Apart from the Master of Ministry (M.Min.) program, credits for all other programs listed below are the maximum required for the degree. These credits may be less based on actual credits earned in the student's lower graduate degree. There are two paths to the higher master's degree, M.Min. and M.C.S programs
MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAMS
MASTER OF MINISTRY (M.MIN.) (30 CREDITS)
MASTER OF CHRISTIAN STUDIES (M.C.S.) (45 CREDITS)
MASTER OF THEOLOGICAL STUDIES (M.T.S.) (60 CREDITS)
MASTER OF DIVINITY (M.DIV.) (92 CREDITS)
Degree concentrations are available for each program.
Examples of degree progression from a lower to a higher graduate program:
Master of Ministry (M.Min.) Path:
M.Min. (30 credits) + M.C.S. (15) = 45 credits for the M.C.S.
M.Min. (30 credits) + M.C.S. (15) + M.T.S. (15) = 60 credits for the M.T.S.
M.Min. (30 credits) + M.T.S. (30) = 60 credits for the M.T.S.
M.Min. (30 credits) + M.T.S. (30) + M.Div. (32) = 92 credits for the M.Div.
Master of Christian Studies (M.C.S.) Path:
M.C.S. (45 credits) + M.T.S. (15) = 60 credits for the M.T.S.
M.C.S. (45 credits) + M.T.S. (15) + M.Div. (32) = 92 credits for the M.Div.
M.C.S. (45 credits) + M.Div. (47) = 92 credits for the M.Div.
The above examples are only optional for progression to a higher graduate degree program. Therefore, a student who desires a higher master's degree has the option to enroll in a lower program and progress to the higher master's degree desired. The student may also enroll directly into the higher master's degree program desired, e.g.: M.C.S. (45 credits), M.T.S. (60 credits) or M.Div. (90 credits). The options help students earn a lower degree while progressing to the degree of desired.
