The MDiv at Central Seminary can be a good fit for students who want to develop a deeper knowledge of theological studies while seeking personal growth and mastering applied ministry skills. Upon completion, students should be able to perform effective ministry functions using the competencies gained through the four main pillars of the program: interpretation, contextualization, performance, and formation. The Master of Divinity program places an emphasis on helping students improve the way they perform, communicate, and practice with integrity. As a result, students can translate their knowledge and personal spiritual journey into a ministry that is engaging and results in positive, life-giving outcomes.
Becoming theologically articulate is one of the essential components of effective ministry-based work. Having comprehensive biblical knowledge and a strong understanding of Christian heritage is at the core of your ministry practice. The curricula will guide you through understanding and interpreting the Bible and Christian Ethics in ways you can apply to modern ministry. Students also take courses that cover media, creativity, innovation, and leadership topics that help you contextualize your knowledge to improve your ministry performance.
The Master of Divinity can be combined with the Graduate Certificate in Chaplaincy. With a few extra classes, students can earn the certificate and the degree. View the course list below for the requirements.
