Master of Divinity Summer/Distance
Atlantic School of Theology is a leader in distributed theological education, and you can choose to pursue the Master of Divinity degree in a five-year “in ministry” format. This course of study will bring you to the AST campus for six weeks every summer for five years to complete the majority of your course work through intensive study. During the remainder of each year of the program, you will complete two further course credits through on-line study while engaged in a sustained and locally supervised ministry practicum that meets the School's requirements and the approval of the student's denomination and church.
First designed as the In-Ministry Program for Ordination (IMPO) for United Church candidates, this form of study is suitable for students from various church traditions and vocational aims and is particularly appropriate for those already working in ministry settings.
In addition to meeting the regular academic requirements for admission to Atlantic School of Theology, students applying for this form of study will also demonstrate the personal qualities and study skills required for both collaborative and independent learning and have access to an up-to-date computer and Internet connection.
