Master of Divinity

The master of divinity degree (M.Div.) prepares students for full-time ministry and/or ministerial ordination or licensure. The program enables students to use their vision and vocation to make an impact in their congregations, their communities and the world. The M.Div. program builds a strong foundation in: knowledge of the Bible; understanding of exegesis, hermeneutics and homiletics; theology; the history of the Christian church and denominations; Christian culture; spiritual and ethical formation; pastoral care; and the philosophy and psychology of preaching. The program is designed to be completed in three years of full-time study.
