You've heard God's call and are eager to answer. At Palm Beach Atlantic University, we are eager to help prepare you for the great journey the Lord has in store for you.
The MACS is offered in a traditional day format on-ground at the West Palm Beach campus, or in a non-traditional weekend format at our Orlando campus. With the Orlando Campus conveniently located near I-4 and the Florida Turnpike, this mode of delivery will enable students living outside the Orlando area to take classes at the Orlando Campus and to complete their degree without having to relocate.
The MACS degree is designed to prepare those who are eager for an advanced seminary education to further their personal or vocational goals. While some studying for the MACS degree will be preparing for vocational ministry, others want to integrate an advanced theological education into their businesses, careers or lay ministries.
