Master of Divinity in the New Evangelization Overview

Our Master of Divinity program is a professional degree that offers students theology immersed in Sacred Scripture. One’s theological foundation is then applied practically in pastoral studies. As a result, our graduates effectively respond to Pope Saint John Paul II’s call for new “ardor, methods and expression” in evangelization (John Paul II, Address to CELAM, 1983).

The 72-credit Master of Divinity in the New Evangelization prepares Catholic men and women for ministry. Additionally, it prepares individuals for further studies, such as a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.), or another Doctoral program, Licentiate, Graduate Certificate, or Post Master’s Certificate.

Through our online Master of Divinity program, you will be guided to pursue truth, goodness, and beauty for a lifetime. Be ready to “make disciples of all nations” by teaching them to follow all that Jesus has commanded us (Matthew 28:19-20).
