- M.Div. and Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) – This dual degree is offered in cooperation with the School of Social Work of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
- M.Div. and Master of Science in Pastoral Counseling (M.S.) – This dual degree is offered in cooperation with the School of Allied Health Professions at VCU and is designed to equip chaplains and pastoral counselors for the practice of ministry in their fields.
- The newly launched M.Div. and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) – This dual degree is offered in cooperation with the Graduate and Professional Studies MBA program at Averett University and is designed to equip ministers (particularly in smaller churches) to be able to handle accounting, finances, and marketing for the church.
For all three programs, students must apply to each program separately and complete degree requirements with each school before being awarded both degrees.
