Joint Degrees (MDIV/MASC or MDIV/MA)

Starr King allows students interested in integrating academic, ministerial and activist professional formation to pursue both the Master of Divinity (MDIV) and either the Master of Arts in Social Change (MASC) or the Master of Arts (MA) degrees concurrently.

Matriculation in concurrent MDIV/MASC or MDIV/MA 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.

The double degree will entail:

Tuition for two years for the MDIV
Tuition for two years for the MASC or MA
Continuing fees for either the MASC or MA after the fourth year
24 units can be used towards both degrees, at the discretion of the studentís advisor.

The Director of the MASC program should also be consulted when the MASC degree is involved.
Please note that the financial advantages of the double degree end at the conclusion of the second year of the first degree program. Academic advantages persist beyond this time frame.

Students should also note that the MA program is not a fixed tuition program such that tuition costs may increase from year to year.
