Our degree programs offer preparation for lay/ordained ministry, vocations in nonprofit leadership, and doctoral studies in theology.
In most cases, a Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution is required for admission. A limited number of qualified applicants without Bachelor's degrees may be admitted to the MDiv Program in accordance with the standards of The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.
