Master of Divinity
The Master of Divinity degree is a 96 credit program that can be completed in 3 years and is designed to prepare you for a
wide range of Christian ministry. It provides the solid foundation needed for
ordination in pastoral ministry and it is excellent preparation for hospital or military chaplaincy, a cross-cultural ministry, youth ministry, or further graduate study and teaching.
PRINCIPLES OF THE MASTER OF DIVINITY DEGREE INCLUDE:
CLASSICAL THEOLOGICAL DISCIPLINES
We affirm the substance of the M.Div. curriculum, in terms of the subject-matter of courses, in the
critical study of scripture, tradition, and ministry; and consequently we reaffirm the organization of
the curriculum into three areas:
Historical/Systematic Theology and Ethics
The Practice of Ministry
Public Theology address issues of the public life of the nation,
and to cultivate in students and faculty an understanding of the cultural realities and structures
within which the church lives and carries out its mission.
Spiritual Disciplines engage students around issues of personal and
spiritual formation, and to cultivate, in students and faculty, the discernment of the working of the
Holy Spirit in the lives of individuals.
Throughout the curriculum, care shall be taken to address questions of importance to ministry by
bringing the theological disciplines together in common conversations and projects that have
bearing on such questions.
Aims to assist students and faculty to understand
cultures and traditions represented in the seminary community and, wherever possible, to use
these cultures and traditions as pedagogical resources.
Enables students to acquire information literacy
skills and other habits essential to being pro-active, life-long learners.
