Our innovative MDiv program combines online and on-campus coursework with an internship at a participating field site—a congregation, chaplaincy, or other ministry settings. Financial aid available.
- NON-RESIDENTIAL: Select weekends (usually 3/semester/course) or one-week intensives (January and June) on-campus plus ongoing online coursework.
- CONTEXTUAL: Link what you learn to the realities of the world, the church, and your local ministry setting.
- LEADERSHIP-FOCUSED: Formational and practical skills needed for ministerial and community leadership.
Integrative field education:
- ORGANIC: Reflects the charism of your place of ministry and incorporates leadership from your sponsoring parish/diocese.
- THOROUGH: 2-3-year service commitment with ongoing evaluations.
- COLLABORATIVE: You study congregational life by participating in, and contributing to its dynamics, story, and tradition—MORE HERE.
Coursework encompasses religious heritage; ministry and leadership; personal spiritual formation; contact and culture; and general electives. Required studies include 3 advanced-level courses taken alongside experienced practitioners from diverse ministry settings.
Most courses meet on campus 1-3 weekends per fall and spring semester, or for one week in January and June; some can be taken 100% online. Elective courses can be taken at other seminaries and include Clinical Pastoral Education studies.
