Australasia: Mobile Programs

In Australasia, DTS offers four mobile programs: MACL, MACS, MBTS, and CGS.

Master of Arts in Christian Leadership
The MACL enables you to stay in your current ministry while DTS partners with local church and parachurch ministries to offer a seminary degree. DTS tailored the program to help you better love and serve your people. You’ll learn alongside other like-minded leaders working for the good of your community and city.
Master of Arts (Christian Studies)
The MACS provides a strong foundation for Christians living out their faith in any setting. It is designed primarily for lay leaders who desire training so as to better serve within their church or parachurch organization.
Master of Biblical & Theological Studies
The MBTS is a 36-hour degree designed for business professionals and laypersons who desire to be equipped to serve in the workforce, at home, and in the church. The MBTS gives students an overview of the entire biblical story, introduces them to key theological concepts, and includes 12 free elective hours.
Certificate of Graduate Studies
The CGS provides Christian laypersons who desire a short program of seminary studies to equip them for effective ministry in the local church or missionary candidates who anticipate service in nonprofessional ministries whose mission board requires graduate study in Bible and theology.

How It Works

There are three types of courses offered in the Mobile MACL, MACS, MBTS, and CGS—courses in Auckland, in Dallas, and online. We have specifically designed the course rotation so that every other semester either we send a professor to you to teach a live course, or you come to Dallas for specially designed courses for Mobile MACL, MACS, MBTS, and CGS students.
