Divinity (M.DIV.)

Trinity College - Faculty of Divinity

Field of Study:Divinity/Ministry(BD, MDiv.)


The objective of education in Divinity at the basic degree level is growth in understanding and formation of persons for lay or ordained ministry. This objective is fostered by the pursuit of three interrelated goals.

First is the intellectual understanding of Christian faith and tradition, which is pursued by means of study in four departments: Biblical, Historical, Theological, and Pastoral.

Second is practice in the art of ministry. This art is learned not only in the classroom but also where ministry occurs. A wide range of learning situations, e.g., parish, clinical, social justice, and institutional, is available within commuting range of the College. This learning is undertaken with experienced supervisors who assist in the integration of practice and theory.

Third is the commitment to personal and spiritual growth, both individually and within the many communities in which we live.
