Presents the New 

“2022 Dual Degree Program in Houston, Texas!”     

Accessible   Affordable          Accredited

Fast-track your way to two degrees in three years. The new innovative dual degree ministry program at Carolina Christian College (CCC) is coming to Houston, Texas, this Fall 2022.

The Masters of Relgious Education will be held online and the Doctor of Ministry is a hybrid that’s held on campus at the Above & Beyond Fellowship in Spring, Texas. 

The new dual degree ministry program at Carolina Christian College is a one of a kind program for Pastors, Ministry Staff Personal, Volunteers, and people in the work place. Looking for a way to fast-track your ministry academic program? CCC offers an option to earn an affordable, assessable and accredited combined Master’s and Doctoral in Ministry degree in three years. 

The dual-degree program give our students the opportunity to earn two degrees in one program. Offered jointly by Carolina Christian College Houston Location at Above & Beyond Fellowship in Spring, Texas.  A new way to earn both Master’s and Doctoral degrees in ministry within three years is now possible.  Students enter a dual degree program to accelerate their education or to enrich their ministry portfolio by adding a new major. At CCC you can be accepted into the D.Min. program while still earning a Master’s degree.  

Why Would I Choose to Pursue a Dual Degree? Why Would I Choose to Pursue a Concurrent Masters & Doctor’s Degree?

The cost of earning a Doctoral degree after a Master’s Degree is time consuming and can be expensive. This provides an excellent opportunity for those who know what they need or want to pursue not only their Master’s degree but also their Doctoral Degree. Students will earn both degrees simultaneously but in a shorter time span.

Note: Dual degrees may, therefore, be awarded at the same time, or one degree may be awarded prior to the second. A limited number of the MRE and DMIN. students may enroll in the dual program, so that at the end of three years these students will be acknowledged as an M.R.E and D.Min graduated. 

Our affordable dual-degree and accelerated master’s programs transition you into our accredited Doctor of Ministry Program. CCC is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), P.O. Box 780339, Orlando, Florida: (407) 207-0808. ABHE is an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education and the Department of Education.
