A Master of Divinity degree at University of Redlands prepares students for Church ordination or to pursue other professional ministries where advanced leadership skills are essential. 


Those ministries include congregational pastor, healthcare and military chaplaincy, campus ministry, spiritual direction, pastoral counseling, not-for-profit work, and other community based ministries. 


  • Unlike some master’s programs, the M.Div. combines a framework of academic disciplines- Bible studies, theology, history, homiletics, liturgics, counseling, and Christian spirituality- with practical ministry experience.
  • The Divinity program at University of Redlands fulfills the education requirements of most major denominations. Core M.Div. courses are taught in San Anselmo, but many elective and upper level courses are offered in Berkeley at other GTU schools.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Old Testament 
  • New Testament 
  • Church History 
  • Theology
  • Ethics or Public Religion 
  • Spiritual Formation for Ministry
