The Master of Divinity (M.Div.) is the most comprehensive formational degree for ministry that ACU’s Graduate School of Theology offers.
The M.Div. is designed to offer you a firm grounding in scripture, history and theology as well as training in practical ministry skills such as the art of preaching and reading cultures and contexts. This graduate degree, which offers missions or ministry concentration, will prepare you to enter into ministry or expand your current vocation; it also provides a solid foundation for further study in Ph.D., Th.D. and D.Min programs.
Our program emphasizes learning in context – you will explore case studies and participate in sketching and ministry scenarios. Weekly mentoring groups provide an informal setting for prayer and discussion among your peers and faculty mentors.
Our missions program, the only one of its kind among Association for Theological Schools-accredited programs, is geared toward those looking to engage the world through church planting and intercultural and global missions.
