The Master of Divinity introduces graduate students to the sources and content of the christian story and message at an advanced level, and provides training which combines articulation of this story and message with their application and practice in the contemporary world. This course also includes the essential research principles and methods used in Divinity, as preparation for higher degrees in Theology and Ministry.
The Master of Divinity is a means of preparing men and women for communicating Christian knowledge as well as laying the foundation for advanced degrees in theology and ministry.
