MDiv alumni have gone on to a wide variety of vocational pursuits, including pastors, denominational leaders, scholars, authors, community development leaders, and missionary workers in many different contexts locally, nationally, and globally. The MDiv is the prerequisite degree for Doctor of Ministry (DMin) programs and is the recommended graduate degree for those intending to pursue advanced theological study (usually at the ThM or PhD levels).
All Master of Divinity students must complete an internship. Field-based ministry experience is vital to the development of MDiv students. Field experiences are mentored experiences between students, faculty and church pastors. Mentoring provides opportunities to invest in the next generation of Christian leaders. Ministries are also enriched by having students serve in a church or parachurch setting.
