  • Most masters-level intensives are offered on campus over three Friday/Saturday weekend sessions in the fall and spring semesters.
  • Congregational leadership and Development intensive courses for Masters and Doctoral students are offered on campus during week-long intensives in January and June.
  • Intensive courses in the ACTS DMin in Preaching program are offered at the campus of McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago during a three week summer residency over three consecutive summers.
