Christian ministry involves cross-cultural interaction and understanding, whether at home or abroad. This innovative dual degree program combines Eastern University’s online MA in Theological and Cultural Anthropology (MATCA) with Palmer Seminary's Master of Divinity (MDiv) program (online or on-campus.) Together, these two degrees equip students with the ability to work effectively at the intersection of faith and culture.
Why Choose the Dual Degree?
- Shortened Time to Completion: Earn 2 degrees in less than 4 years! Certain courses from each degree count toward the other degree, reducing the total number of required credits.
- Tuition Discounts: Pay nearly 15% less tuition for the online MDiv or nearly 20% less for the on-campus MDiv.
- Well-Rounded Preparation: Prepare for a wide range of impactful opportunities, including pastoral ministry, social services, cross-cultural mission, education (teaching), church ministry, or doctoral studies.
