Master of Divinity (81-hours)
The 81-hour Master of Divinity program is designed to provide a comprehensive biblically-based curriculum to serve both the church and the community for Christian men and women in ministry and the marketplace. The degree program can be completed 100% online (no residency required) or through a combination of on-campus classes.
The program contains three new courses (i.e., Foundations of Health Care Ethics, New Testament Theology, and Intertestamental History and Literature). These courses are unique and set this degree apart from other Seminaries. These three areas of study are beneficial for anyone wishing to better understand key life events in the lives of those they minister to, and to understand better the unity of the Bible and the world in which Jesus and the New Testament authors lived.
Also, the program contains new courses for the MDIV (i.e., Foundations of Apologetics and Foundations of Leadership). These courses are in areas that will benefit students desiring a lifetime of ministry. Students may choose to complete the 81-hour Master of Divinity program with open electives or with biblical languages. The open electives track allows students to customize their course of study with various electives to choose from. Students pursuing the biblical languages track will have the opportunity to study biblical content by learning the original languages of Greek and Hebrew.
Our tuition and fees are some of the lowest in the nation for the Master of Divinity. We also offer institutional scholarship opportunities, payment plans, and Federal Financial Aid to help you get started.
