MDiv in Christian Ethics

Christian Ethics

The Christian Ethics track provides specialized academic training that prepares men and women to impact the culture for Christ through prophetic moral witness and service in a variety of settings.

Some choose this program to enhance qualifications for further academic study. Most, however, choose this program to add focus to preparation for ministry in the local church, on the mission field, in denominational service or parachurch ministry.

The M.Div. in Christian Ethics can be completed in three years, or a student may complete both an M.Div. in Christian Ethics and an M.A. (Ethics, Theology, and Culture) with an additional year of study. In addition to the M.Div. core, students specializing in Christian ethics must complete 12 hours from a specified list of Christian ethics courses.
