Cohort Model


Courses in the MAPM degree program take place in a cohort model, which means students begin their degree together on campus at orientation and then proceed through each of the courses in a prescribed order until they graduate together. This model not only helps motivate students to keep going; it creates a spiritual and relational bond with fellow students moving through the degree program, allowing students to rejoice and struggle together and to be accountable to one another.
