Master of Divinity

Program Information
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Divinity/Ministry (BD, MDiv.)
Description The Master of Divinity Degree requires 30 single semester credits earned over a period of between three (full-time) and seven (part-time) years. An initial cluster of ‘Foundation Courses’ in Scripture, Theology, Pastoral Studies and Worship inaugurate the course of study. Supervised Field Education placements are made in the first two years of the program. In the final year of study, the Graduate Project and Seminar in the Practice of Ministry enables students to design and undertake significant pastoral research in conjunction with a self-selected field setting. The remainder of the program – roughly two-thirds of the total number of courses – consists of electives. Distribution requirements together with cyclical patterns of course offerings will ensure that students encounter and wrestle with critical bodies of knowledge and develop skill sets in each of the pastoral, theological and scriptural fields of study. Opportunities for Clinical Pastoral Education, the study of biblical languages, and completion of a thesis, as well as regular denominational formation programs, may be accommodated within this program of study.
