Traditionally, our four-year M.Div. program includes three years of courses and one full year of internship. Now you can take courses and intern simultaneously, or finish earlier by studying/interning during the summers.


We are excited that you are thinking about pursuing your call to be a leader in a Christian community. In addition to applying to Luther Seminary, M.Div. students are required to go through a candidacy process, according to the church body in which they are preparing to serve. The Student Resource Center can help you navigate this process.

Along with our on campus options, you can choose to pursue your degree from home through our Distributed Learning (DL) program. The DL program enables you to pursue your degree at your own pace, from just about anywhere.

Graduation requirements for the M.Div. degree:

  • 30 courses including Contextual Learning (internship, Christian Public Leader, clinical pastoral education and cross-cultural education)
