Tyndale Theological Seminary

The Master of Divinity Program (MDiv)

The MDiv is a three-year degree program. It is a broad, practical degree, providing a solid background of all theological disciplines, along with a variety of ministry and intercultural courses. It is an excellent preparation for ministry of all types.

The ideal student for the MDiv program will have a bachelor’s degree (in any area), and desires to serve in various church, missionary and parachurch ministries. While it is designed especially for those who do not have a previous theological education, it can also be appropriate for those with a prior theological degree who want to deepen their theological knowledge, and sharpen their ministry skills.
