Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in New Jersey in USA. The Master of Divinity degree program is designed to prepare students for a wide range of Christian ministry. This program, required by many denominations for ordination, is offered at the New Brunswick campus through day and evening classes and at the St. John’s site through evening classes. Education for ministry is not a matter of simply accumulating certain knowledge and skills. It is the beginning of a process of personal transformation whereby the student appropriates the knowledge and skills pertinent to ministry in a way that shapes the student’s self-understanding and life within the church and the world. Thus, both the integration of the diverse fields of knowledge and skill, and the integration of these fields with the actual experience and practice of ministry, are essential to a theological education. The course of study for the M.Div. falls into three major categories. The first consists of the core academic courses, grouped into three fields: Biblical Studies; Historical, Theological and Ethical Studies; Ministry Studies. The second consists of the experience and practice of varieties of ministry. This is found principally in a student’s Field Education placements, but also in the various aspects of life in the seminary community. Those courses which seek to integrate the various academic fields, and academic learning with practical experience, form the final category. The Ministeriums and required integrative courses constitute this category. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS The application deadline for US students for a term is two months before the first day of the semester. The deadline for international students is six months before the first day of the semester.
