What Makes the MDiv Unique?
At The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, we believe that Christians need to think of ministry in broader terms, and the Master of Divinity degree was formulated to prepare students with the knowledge, insight, passion, and skill needed for Christian service in a variety of settings – both within and outside traditional church ministry. The Seattle School believes that an effective Master of Divinity degree should prepare the student to interweave an understanding of the Biblical text, the human soul, and culture. The Seattle School Master of Divinity program asserts an integrated approach allowing students to form Christian worldviews from the interplay of spiritual, cultural, and psychological studies. Our MDiv program emphasizes theological reflection as well as relational and spiritual growth.
The Seattle School MDiv is designed for students who are looking for:
- A program that integrates the study of theology with the human soul that results in both spiritual and relational growth.
- The ability to pursue innovative and creative approaches to what it means to be God’s Church in the world.
- A learning environment that seeks to live out the practice of theology
The Seattle School MDiv program prepares students to achieve the following goals:
- ENGAGE in intercultural service, pastoral counseling, Christian education, chaplaincy, and related areas of service.
- FURTHER their postgraduate education by pursuing terminal degrees in the fields of theology or biblical studies.
- PROMOTE personal growth through understanding their own relational dynamics.
