Master of Divinity (MDIV)


The MASTER OF DIVINITY and MASTER OF THEOLOGY degrees are designed primarily to be highly pragmatic programs of study, specifically to equip the minister in the practical aspects of his ministry. These degrees may be either terminal in nature, or interim programs which prepare the Candidate for the Doctoral programs. The GSST Master of Divinity and Master of Theology programs allow each Candidate maximum flexibility in their choice of courses, which are of interest.

The MASTER OF DIVINITY requires a CORE CURRICULUM of 48 Credit Units, including the Project or Thesis. The other 42 credit units may be selected by the Candidate from the courses available through the GSST Graduate Curriculum.

Entrance Requirements for the MDIV and THM

  • Applicants must possess an earned, four year Bachelor's degree, or its equivalent.
  • A total of 90 Semester Units at the Graduate level are required.
