RELIGIOUS DEGREES (Under Development)

As our seminary develops we hope to be able to expand and offer programs leading to religious degrees such as a Master of Theology (MTh), Master of Divinity (MDiv), Doctor of Theology (ThD), and Doctor of Ministry (DMin) for students who have previously earned a Bachelor or Master degree in a related or supportive subject. We will share more on these advanced programs as they develop.
