Divinity

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

The field of divinity varies by sect and denomination. However, its study is usually undertaken prior to entering sacred ministry. Students learn how to serve the faithful and the needy, how to conduct religious services, the tenets and theology of their faith, and how to communicate from scriptures.

Education in the United States is mainly provided by the public sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: state, local, and federal, in that order. The common requirements to study at a higher education level in United States will include your admissions essay (also known as the statement of purpose or personal statement), transcript of records, recommendation/reference letters, language tests
