Degree seeking students can complete the degree in three summers by attending both sessions for three summers. Some students opt to attend one session for six summers, others prefer a combination. All candidates must complete the degree within six years.


The Spiritual Direction and Directed Retreat Certificate program requires attendance for one, four week session over a three summer period.  It is not possible to complete the Certificate in less than three summers due to it's developmental nature. Students are free to select the session of their choice each summer.

Those who wish to complete both the Certificate and the M.A. may do so by selecting the Certificate courses as the elective course options in the M.A. program. Whether earning the Certificate alone or in combination with the M.A. the certificate course sequence must be followed exactly.
