The Master of Divinity degree at Seattle Pacific University is built on the classical theological disciplines of Scripture, church history, theology, and ethics, and reflects Seattle Pacific University’s vision to engage the culture and change the world with the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ.


As an Master of Divinity student, you will develop the knowledge, skills, and multicultural sensitivities you need to understand the Christian faith and put it into faithful and effective practice for the benefit of the contemporary church and the postmodern world. 

You will also experience rich opportunities for worship, fellowship, and personal spiritual growth in the context of SPU’s evangelical Wesleyan heritage. And you will be equipped to apply what you have learned and experienced in the Master of Divinity program to the pressing needs of the contemporary church and the postmodern world, whether it is in a church, parachurch, mission, or other setting.
