Master of Divinity

On Campus and Online. Practical and Academic. Affordable and Transformative.

The Master of Divinity (M.Div.) is a three-year, 79-credit hour degree that provides a breadth of education in Emmanuel’s core academic areas of theological learning and combines that with the practice of pastoral ministry. Our core academic areas include Old Testament, New Testament, Theology, Church History, and Practical Ministry. We believe you need experience in all of these areas to work well in any of them.

The M.Div. is the standard, professional degree for pastoral ministry. Our graduates have gone on to serve in international missions, rural churches, urban counseling centers, megachurches, military or hospital chaplaincy, campus ministry, and as college professors. Others have pursued careers in the business and non-profit world. Our graduates tell us their lives and ministries have been deepened because of the formative education they received at Emmanuel.
