Stark College and Seminary

Master’s Degree Advanced Tracks available at B. H. Carroll Theological Institute for Stark College & Seminary Bachelor of Arts in Ministry Graduates

Stark College & Seminary Bachelor of Arts in Ministry graduates are eligible to enroll in one of four Advanced Track Programs at Carroll Institute: Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Counseling, Master of Arts in Christian Education, and Master of Arts in Worship. The Advanced Track Program reduces the number of hours required for the degree at Carroll Institute by 25%, allowing students to complete their degree in less time because the program builds on competencies already learned through the Stark Bachelor of Arts in Ministry program.

Details of the course reduction for each master’s degree program are outlined below. Please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@bhcarroll.edu or 972-580-7600 x110 or click here to complete an online request for information.

In addition, Stark Master of Arts in Ministry students have the opportunity to complete an additional master’s degree at Carroll in order to reach Master of Divinity equivalency. Or, they may transfer half of the credits from the Stark Master of Arts in Ministry toward the completion of the Carroll Master of Divinity.
