M.Div – Theology

The Master of Divinity with a concentration in Theology will allow students the opportunity of an in depth engagement with theological themes and texts. Such a concentration presupposes that this understanding of theology as an academic discipline—knowing God—cannot be separated from loving God.  The challenge for the student will be to determine how the study of theology best serves the church, both local and universal.

In addition to the three courses in theology and ethics required in the M.Div. curriculum, students seeking the concentration in theology will take seminars in “Christology,” and “Classics in Christian Theology.”  The student will also write a thesis on a theological topic of interest.

The Master of Divinity with concentration in Theology requires 72 core hours, in addition to 6 hours of concentrated electives in the field of Theology and a thesis, for a total of 81 hours.
