How this works:

  1. Apply to the MA (Christian Studies) at DTS before you enter the final year of your bachelor’s at CBS.
  2. Receive Advanced Standing for courses complete at CBS (15 hours).*
  3. Take Dual Credit classes at DTS during your final year at CBS (24 hours).
  4. Complete your remaining MACS courses (25 hours).

The equation:

"Dual Credit" Courses (24 hrs)
+ Advanced Standing (15 hrs)*
+ Remaining MACS Courses (25 hrs)
= 64 hrs total
