The intensive Master of Divinity graduate program at the Hellenic College Holy Cross prepares both men and women for a life of ordained or lay ministry. Graduate students learn to exemplify and to articulate the Orthodox tradition in its pastoral, liturgical, biblical, patristic, dogmatic, canonical, ethical, and missionary aspects. 


We offer a master degree in Divinity at the Hellenic College Holy Cross. MDiv candidates develop knowledge, sensitivity, and faithfulness to the Church’s liturgical life through daily worship.

Directed formation opportunities and supervised field education connect classroom learning to real-life experience. MDiv graduates become priests, deacons, theologians, chaplains, religious educators, youth ministers, or pursue further graduate studies in a variety of disciplines.
