The Master of Divinity (MDiv)
The Master of Divinity (MDiv.) degree roots Christian leaders in the Scriptures, tradition, and practices of the church with an overarching focus on building missional communities that form fervent disciples. The M.Div. prepares people for ordination in most Protestant communions. Both the residential and distance programs are designed for working adults, for those in bi-vocational ministry, and may be completed in three or four years. Although a student may begin during the spring term, residential and distance students are strongly encouraged to begin in August.
