4+1 Program Application

The 4+1 program allows NCU students to earn a 30-credit Master of Arts in Strategic Leadership or 36-credit Master of Arts in Biblical Theology with just one extra year of education after completing a bachelor’s degree. Senior students may take up to 9 of the required credits in their undergraduate program as graduate -level courses. These courses will also count toward both their bachelor’s and master’s degree requirements.

Our MA is designed to be flexible enough to meet the needs of those pursuing careers in business, vocational ministry, and other fields requiring advanced knowledge for serving your community. It is also one of the most competitively-priced, accredited programs in the region.

Below are a list of eligibility requirements for the 4+1 program:

  • 90 credit hours accumulated at time of enrollment
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above
  • Interview and approval by program director
