OCU and Asbury Theological Seminary Forge Agreement Facilitating MA to MDIV Transfer

Ohio Christian University and Asbury Theological Seminary signed an agreement earlier this month enabling OCU students completing the MA in Ministry to transfer significant hours into the Asbury Master of Divinity degree. The agreement was reached after several months of dialogue between Asbury Provost, Dr. Doug Matthews and Dr. Tim Eades, OCU’s Assistant Provost and Vice President for Non-Traditional Education and Development.  “I am excited about the new partnership with Asbury Theological Seminary and what it means for our MA in Ministry students who decide to pursue additional graduate work,” said Dr. Eades.  Students working on their MA in Ministry at OCU will have, at a minimum, 16 hours of advanced standing in the Master of Divinity at Asbury.

The Ohio Christian University Master of Arts in Ministry is a 32 credit hour program that offers two concentrations: Pastoral Care and Counseling and Practical Theology.  The program can be completed entirely online or at select OCU campus locations.  The MA in Ministry allows up to 9 hours of advanced standing and can be completed in less than two years.
