Matriculation in the joint MDiv/MASC can be done sequentially (starting with only one degree, and then petitioning to apply for the other) or concurrently. However, a student must apply and be admitted to the second program before completing the requirement for the first degree.
There are no residency requirements.
The Director of the MASC program should also be consulted when the MASC degree is involved.
The financial advantages of the double degree are the lowering of total credit load by 24 credits.
