The Master of Divinity program from the Catholic Theological Union prepares students for full-time professional ministry in the Roman Catholic Church. As the basic professional degree in ministry, the M.Div. provides general ministry preparation and offers a variety of opportunities for more specific concentration within the program.


We offer a master degree in Divinity at the Catholic Theological Union. For those seeking to fulfill academic requirements for Roman Catholic Ordination, an additional 30 credit-hours of coursework is required to meet the specifications for academic and ministerial formation as required by The Program of Priestly Formation (Washington: USCCB, 2005).
