Master of Divinity (MDiv) 95 Credit Hours
The Master of Divinity degree is traditionally the most common seminary degree for equipping those whose desire is to serve the Lord in some type of professional ministry capacity. It is especially common among those seeking preparation for pastoral or classroom ministry, or any other ministry where the primary task is expositing the Word of God. However, anyone whose ministry goals will be furthered by obtaining a firm grasp of the Scriptures, including the original languages, will benefit from a Master of Divinity degree from Grace School of Theology.
At Grace, the MDiv degree is uniquely structured to balance biblical and theological studies with ministry skills courses that will result not only in increased knowledge of God’s Word, but also preparation for the common demands of everyday ministry.
The 95-credit degree typically takes a little over 3 years to complete (if one attends full time). Students may transfer up to 47 credits from another accredited graduate institution into the MDiv program.
