LOUISIANA BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
MASTER OF DIVINITY DEGREE

 

Program Description

The Master of Divinity Degree is a 90 credit hour program designed to equip students with the biblical and ministerial skills necessary to serve in any role within a local church or denominational office.  The curriculum is comprehensive including both theological study and practical ministry.  Course content is sufficiently challenging academically for the student without sacrificing the practical value necessary for meeting the ministry needs of people in a local church.  Opportunities exist for transfer credit and life experience credit.  Students who have completed a theological masters degree program of less than 90 hours can generally transfer some and occasionally all the hours from the previous degree into the Master of Divinity.

 

Prerequisite: Candidates for the program must have a completed Bachelors Degree from an institution recognized by Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary.
