The Master of Divinity degree (90 credits) prepares students for ordained ministry with most preparation toward Parish Ministry. There are also concentrations in Church Planting or Global Mission. Traditionally this degree is completed as a full-time residential student taking three years to complete. For those not able to move to the area and become full-time students, students can begin this degree through online courses. A minimum of at least one year as a fulltime (12 credits per semester) residential student is required.
