Recommended Course Sequence

The master of divinity can be completed in three years of full-time study. Some requirements, such as internships, may need to be completed over summers, and you may also opt to take courses in the intensive terms. For full-time students, we suggest the following course sequence to complete your degree in three years, in fall and spring semesters of each year.

Options also exist for part-time and distance-learning students. Learn more about the variety of course formats and options for extending your program beyond four years.
