Degree Programs in Christian Counseling

Master of Arts in Christian Counseling (66 credit hours)

RTS Charlotte offers two ways to pursue your Master of Arts in Christian Counseling degree:

Traditional MACC: The Traditional MACC is designed for students who plan to join the RTS campus community or commute weekly to the Charlotte campus. Students take traditional semester-length courses and complete their degree within two years with the full-time course load.

Summer/Winter MACC: The Summer/Winter MACC is specifically designed for students looking for a biblical, Reformed counseling program but are unable to move to Charlotte. This track allows you to stay in your church, ministry, and career and receive the training you need for effective ministry.

The Summer/Winter MACC involves taking intensive courses for two weeks during each Summer and Winter semester on the Charlotte campus. Other courses are completed through RTS DE or RTS Charlotte during the Fall and Spring semesters. This program allows for maximum flexibility and students can expect to graduate in four years with the part-time course load.
