DescriptionThe M.Div. degree has traditionally served as the primary avenue of preparation for professional Christian ministry. It is still the optimal degree for those serving in local church ministry and remains a necessity for those who sense a call to chaplaincy. It provides for spiritual, intellectual, and practical formation in terms of biblical, historical, theological, and pastoral competencies, equipping students to be effective leaders in the church and contemporary society. A significant component of this program is Ministry Formation; we have integrated this feature throughout three years of the program.

There is also the option of doing a thesis as part of this degree. Students who demonstrate sufficient academic success (at least a B+ or higher in the subject area and a GPA of at least B+) are encouraged to consider the thesis option. The thesis allows students to pursue their own research, while working with an academic mentor on the faculty. Those who intend to go on for further academic training are strongly encouraged to pursue the thesis option. (6 units)
