The Fast Track BA + MDIV
The Fast Track BA + M.Div. allows you to apply 30 hours of his or her undergraduate biblical, theological and ministry courses toward the Master of Divinity program. This will leave only 45 hours to complete to earn your graduate degree, saving you time and money. Compared to traditional seminary which is typically a three-year program following four years of undergraduate study, the Clamp Fast Track degree is great opportunity. All of our programs are fully accredited through SACS.
Traditional seminaries start theological education from the foundation up. If you took Christian studies in college, it's essentially starting over.
Repeating courses is unnecessary. Instead of starting over, you should be able to pick up from where you left off in your undergraduate work. At Clamp Divinity School, you'll receive a better education that takes less time and is less expensive.
Clamp Divinity School
The Fast Track BA + MDIV begins as a traditional undergraduate program. You can customize your degree to fit your interest by adding a concentration such as Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry, Preaching, Missions, Apologetics, Women's Ministry, as well as Biblical Studies. During your sophomore year, provided you have at least a 3.0 GPA and pastoral recommendation, you can apply to begin FAST TRACK courses. These select courses can be articulated up as Graduate Level courses. You may take up to 30 credit hours of FAST TRACK courses.

Completing 30 credit hours of Fast Track courses, shortens your Master of Divinity (M.Div.) to only 45 credit hours!
How does it work?
1. Apply to the undergraduate program.
Once you are accepted into the Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies program, you can add concentrations such as Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry, Preaching, Missions, Apologetics, women's ministry, as well as Biblical Studies.
2. Qualify for Fast-Track
During your sophomore year, provided you have the required GPA, you can apply to start taking Fast Track courses. This requires a 3.0 GPA and recommendation from a pastor at the church the student is attending.
Although the student is still considered an undergraduate student, these courses are master level courses.
3. Graduation from the Undergraduate Program.
When you complete your undergraduate degree, you will graduate as any other undergraduate student and attend your graduation ceremony.
4. Completion of M.Div.
When you complete your undergraduate degree, all of the Fast Track Course credits will be articulated, meaning your credit hours will be accredited towards the M.Div. degree program. If you have successfully completed your Fast Track courses, you will only have 45 hours left to complete your M.Div.
