Master of Divinity

The Master of Divinity (MDiv) is the seminary’s flagship degree designed for preparing the student for a ministry of the Word. The MDiv curriculum is constructed and sequenced to develop within the student theological soundness along with appropriate affections for God, His people, and those without Christ. The Master of Divinity includes ninety-six hours of course work in the biblical languages, theology, biblical content, and pastoral ministry. Upon completion of the MDiv, the student will have the biblical, theological, and exegetical skills necessary for credible ministry to the body of Christ in the 21st century.

The graduating Master of Divinity student will be able to: 1) demonstrate competency in the use and application of Biblical Greek and Hebrew; 2) exegete the biblical text with sound methodological principles and practices; 3) formulate and express theology in a manner that is exegetically sound, clearly expressed, historically informed, and methodologically coherent; 4) engage the scope of church history and comprehend its significance for theology and ministry; 5) communicate the Scriptures clearly and effectively in a variety of contexts; and 6) provide leadership in a variety of ministry contexts, as appropriate to roles defined in Scripture.

Students with a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent from an approved four-year college or university may enroll in the Master of Divinity degree program. A candidate for the MDiv must complete all course work with a minimum grade point average of 2.3 (C+). In addition, the MDiv candidate must meet all graduation requirements listed in the seminary catalog.
