Master of Divinity (MDiv) Degree

For individuals who wish to pursue ordained ministry, the Master of Divinity is the standard degree. Scholars undergo a rigorous program of ministry training and biblical and theological study to lay the framework for a future career ministering to God’s people. The Master of Divinity, offered online by Grand Canyon University, empowers bachelor’s-prepared individuals to develop a strong foundation for vocational ministry.

What is the MDiv Curriculum?

The Master of Divinity degree follows a pastorally oriented curriculum. It is an intensive program of study that walks students through the history of Christianity, the biblical languages and the principles of Christ-centered preaching. Some of the core classes for the MDiv program include the following:

  • Christian Worldview and Mission
  • New Testament Exegesis: Gospels and Acts
  • Old Testament Exegesis: Pentateuch
  • Biblical Leadership and Ministry
  • Christian Apologetics

Additionally, MDiv students are required to attend three week-long residencies throughout the program. Each residency is an opportunity to work closely with professors, missionaries and ministerial leaders to inspire deeper understanding and plant the seed for lifelong relationships in the Christian community.

Throughout the program, students participate in ministry experiences under supervised guidance. Students may elect to participate in an optional internship for the MDiv online program to gain additional hands-on, real-world experience under the supervision of a seasoned gospel minister.
