Hybrid Format & Degree Options
Instead of traditional seminary weekly classes, the MAYM degree at Austin Seminary is offered in a hybrid, intensive format. Residents participate in 3 multi-day Intensives and weekly discussion groups each semester. A fourth optional intensive is provided each semester for elective coursework. Intensives occur at the Austin Seminary campus and the Nashville extension. Once each semester, all residents travel to Austin Seminary for an Intensive together. The location you attend is determined by which site would be easier for you to travel.
Residents completing their MDIV at APTS will earn two degrees: MAYM and MDIV. All 44 hours (88 APTS credits) of the MAYM program apply directly to the MDIV program at Austin Seminary. If you take 9-12 hours per semester, you can complete the MDIV program at APTS in 4 additional semesters.
