MA Pastoral Ministry intensives classes are held each summer on the campus of Andrews University. Classes are usually held in a seminar room or classroom in the seminary building on campus; the specific room location will be identified in each course outline, or inquire at the seminary dean's office upon your arrival. Signs are usually posted in the building to direct you to the classroom reserved for your class. Be sure to check ahead of time on course location, because occasionally we must use a campus facility other than the seminary building.
