Pastoral Counseling & Chaplaincy (PCC)

The Master of Divinity, Pastoral Counseling & Chaplaincy major, degree provides coursework and practical experience leading to a career as a Pastoral Counselor or Chaplain. A Master of Divinity degree requires the equivalent of three years of full-time study, 93 credit hours, and is considered a “terminal degree.” Ordination by one’s specific group or tradition may be required for endorsement or employment in addition to the degree. Horapollo University does not ordain clergy. Students in this program are considered to be Pastoral Counseling and Chaplaincy Majors. The Master of Divinity with a Pastoral Counseling major is a distinct program, with different requirements from the general Master of Divinity degree described earlier.
