  • Ordained pastors or deacons
  • Congregational leaders
  • Community organizers or activists

Whether in full-time or bi-vocational ministry, graduates of this flexible and innovative program will be rooted in the Christian story and traditions, capable of effective and creative leadership and spiritually and socially resourceful for cultivating the radical gospel of Jesus Christ in, with and for the world.

Learn Together and Where You Are

At Drew, we know that learning happens everywhere. This degree is designed to connect your learning in a ministry context, at Seminary Hall, in online video conference classrooms, and in off-campus immersions. It can be completed in a combination of in-person and online learning organized in a mix of semester-long and intensive schedules. Although 3 years remains the most common timing for an MDiv, this degree can be completed in as little as 2 ½ years or can be taken part-time over 4 years.
