Master of Divinity

What is the Master of Divinity degree?

The Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree is designed for students who intend to enter full time vocational ministry. The degree provides the most comprehensive program of study for the person who desires thorough theological and practical preparation. This program is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).

The M.Div. is designed to be completed in five to six years part time or three to four years full time. Courses are scheduled so that students who are working full time may pursue their studies without compromising their employment and family life.    


Who should consider the M.Div. degree?
The M.Div. is ideal for people wishing to be exposed to, assisted with, and prepared for understanding and articulating their ministerial calling by seeking intellectual growth in knowledge of scripture and tradition in order to better shape their theology and practice of ministry.
