About Our Online Classroom
Everyone learns differently. Some students need direct interaction with a professor; others like to collaborate in groups; and even still there are some who prefer to work independently and learn on their own. Today’s virtual classroom creates a rich atmosphere that can appeal to almost every student and every style of learning. And Mid-Atlantic Christian University’s online degree program offers an engaging platform for students to discover their true calling.

Work at Your Own Pace
We understand that life’s demands are different for each person, and sometimes it’s not always easy to find the time to schedule a class for the same time each and every day. Unlike a traditional classroom environment with fixed class schedules, MACU’s online classroom is open whenever it’s most convenient to you.
MACU’s online program gives you the opportunity to join our community of believers. In addition to the spiritually engaging curriculum, you can also listen to our regular podcast, Impact. Transform. Lead. Hear students share their personal testimonials; listen to guest speakers impart their experiences with their faith and with God, and receive the word of God as delivered from our faculty. However you wish to engage yourself into our community, you will be strengthening your relationship God and reinforcing your faith through great teachings and a devout community.
Moodle Online Environment

Grades and professor contact is easily accessible through an easy-to-use dashboard, which allows students to quickly jump from one section to another.
