The Divinity program from Anderson University (South Carolina) will prepare you for the ministry as well as for doctoral studies in ministry or theology.


Biblical, practical study

Courses in the Divinity program at Anderson University (South Carolina) will give you the solid foundation you need for ministry. You'll learn how to accurately interpret scripture passages, how to use the biblical languages for greater understanding, and how to integrate theological truth with ministry effectiveness. In classes such as Biblical Interpretation, students learn how to work through scriptural passages, how to ask the right questions about theology in order to draw conclusions. We're not trying to give you "the right answers" but to equip you with the skills to ask the right kinds of biblical questions, to become biblically minded.

Classes such as Preaching teach students how to develop a sermon from its idea and structure to its delivery. Our sequence of leadership courses helps students learn how to relate to people, organize a church, manage staff, and oversee a budget. The program also includes an internship, during which a student could work at a church alongside a senior pastor, music minister, or youth minister, for example, to get hands-on training.

Preparation for ministry

Our Divinity graduates will be prepared for ministry positions, including senior or associate pastor, youth minister, children's minister, worship leader, hospital chaplain, military chaplain, and foreign or domestic missions worker, including roles in college ministry, denominational leadership and parachurch organization leadership. The Master of Divinity is the standard degree for vocational ministry.
