Master of Divinity in Biblical Studies

Main Campus

The Master of Divinity programme is designed to provide an integrated training for those entering the pastorate in diverse situations, including missionary service, church education ministries, teaching in theological institutions and other related types of Christian service.

The programme draws from various divisions of the theological disciplines, thus allowing the programme to give the student the option to concentrate on one area of emphasis or specialisation. Students in the programme can pursue any one of the following emphases: Biblical Studies, Christian Education, Church History, Missions, Pastoral, Theological and Translation Studies. On the other hand, a student can pursue a general area of study without taking any emphasis
