Accreditations & Affiliations


The Divinity School is accredited by The Commission on Accrediting of The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS). The following degrees are approved: Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Christian Ministry, and Doctor of Ministry. The School’s policy of decision making regarding faculty, curriculum, degree requirements, and library resources are in accordance with ATS policies and standards.

Every seminary and divinity school accredited by the Association of Theological Schools must periodically undergo a self-study process and host an ATS Comprehensive Accreditation Committee. As an ATS-member school, Campbell University Divinity School will be hosting such a committee on October 2-5, 2017.

The ATS Standards (7.A.4) require that, “In preparation for an evaluation visit, a school shall advertise to its constituencies at least 60 days prior to the visit that it is receiving an evaluation committee and invite comment in writing to the school and/or to the Commission concerning the institution’s qualifications for accreditation. These comments will be available to the evaluation committee. The evaluation committee may also include an open hearing scheduled during the course of the visit.”

We invite your written comments concerning the Divinity School for use by the evaluation committee. Please send your comments to Dr. Derek Hogan, chairperson of the Self-Study. Comments may also be mailed to Attn: ATS Evaluation, Campbell University Divinity School, PO Drawer 4050, Buies Creek, NC 27506.
