Students may combine the Master of Divinity and Master of Arts degrees to form a joint MDiv/MA degree. This is especially attractive to students who are preparing for a teaching ministry or those who are training for parish ministry and wish to pursue an area of particular interest before seeking a call.

The joint MDiv/MA degree requires a minimum of 105 credits, normally completed in four years of full-time study or a maximum of six years part-time study. While the MDiv and MA cannot be taken concurrently, 24 units of coursework can be shared between the two degrees. For a student enrolled in the MDiv program at PSR, PSR is the Common MA school of affiliation.
