Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's Degree Program with NYTS

Through a partnership with the New York Theological Seminary, clergy and religious leaders can earn both a bachelor's degree and master's degree through the accelerated program. Students completing the program earn a bachelor's degree from The College of New Rochelle and a master's degree from New York Theological Seminary.

A student with no prior advanced education who completes the Certificate in Christian Ministry at NYTS can transfer 18 credits towards a bachelor's degree in the College's School of New Resources for adult learners. During the final semesters of their undergraduate education, students can complete nine credits at the master's level which can be applied to both their undergraduate and graduate programs.
