The Master of Divinity programme enables university graduates to obtain comprehensive theological knowledge, gain ministry skills, and specialize in a chosen discipline. Thus, the degree both prepares students for Christian ministry and qualifies them to teach at graduate (BTh) level. An MDiv fulfils the entry requirements of the Asia Theological Association for MTh.
MDiv is delivered through four departments: Biblical Studies, Christian Theology, Practical Theology, Intercultural and Religious Studies. These departments will offer specializations, but not all specializations may be on offer each year.
- Entry Requirements
The entry requirements are as for the MA.
- Period of Study
MDiv is a three-year full-time residential programme.
