Mid-America recognizes that students seek seminary education for a variety of reasons. Mid-America offers courses for lay church members as well as educational opportunities for ordained ministers of Christian schoolteachers. Persons desiring a theological education without pursuing ordination may be admitted to Mid-America's Master of Theological Studies degree program. The primary program offered at Mid-America is the Master of Divinity degree program. Mid-America also provides transferable academic credit for students exploring other seminary options. A student not enrolled in either the Master of Divinity program or the Master of Theological Studies program is classified as a Non-Degree student and is not required to meet entrance and course prerequisites.
