Master of Divinity (MDIV)
(90 SEMESTER UNITS - THREE YEARS)
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.
