Master of Divinity (M.Div) – Pastoral Studies – 90 Credit Hours

The Master of Divinity program serves to provide solid preparation for pastoral ministry, ministry on the mission field, and chaplaincy. Other ministry goals, such as Christian education, campus ministry, and counseling will also benefit from the biblical and theological foundation offered in the Master of Divinity program. Advance standing is granted for those who have adequate undergraduate preparation in the specified areas.

The Master of Divinity program builds on any of the M.A. programs of the Seminary. Because both the Greek and Hebrew languages are required for this program, it fits better with either the N.T. or O.T. programs. However, because the core is the same for all M.A. programs, any M.A. degree may be applied toward the M.Div. degree.

Advanced Standing Option

Graduates from Christian colleges that hold a doctrinal position similar to Calvary s may petition to have up to 15 credit hours waived (i.e. reducing the total hours required) if they have earned at least a B in equivalent upper-level (junior or senior) courses in the following areas: Hebrew (up to 8 hours); Greek (second-year or above; up to 8 hours); biblical language electives (second-year or above; up to 6 hours); Bible exposition electives (up to 6 hours); theology electives (up to 4 hours); homiletics (up to 3 hours); and Bible, biblical language, or theology electives (up to 6 hours).
