Master of Divinity
Master of Divinity (78-85 hours, on-campus or online)
The three-year (if full time) Master of Divinity (M.Div.) program provides a broad-based and integrated study of scripture and theology, spiritual formation, cultural context, and Christian ministry. This professional degree enables the student to meet the educational requirements for ordination to the Christian ministry.
There are four M.Div. concentrations:
The M.Div. concentrations are all available online and require attendance at four Residencies, eight on-campus classes, or a combination of the two. (See Online Learning.) Most M.Div. classes are offered online in either real-time or asynchronous formats. Some of the M.Div. Teaching and Honors Research concentration classes are offered solely on campus as summer intensives.
WBS is an accredited seminary, and our Grad Certificate, M.A., M.Div., and D.Min. programs are all approved by the Association of Theological Schools.
