Boston University's Dual Degree Program in Divinity and Sacred Music (MDiv/MSM) is designed for those preparing to be church musicians who wish to engage in a full range of theological studies and preparation for ordination.


Key facts

Boston University's Dual Degree Program in Divinity and Sacred Music also allows students to develop their musical gifts to a professional level. It is based on a perception that the integrity of worship comprises both word and music. The program prepares candidates for a dual ministry in areas such as church music and pastoral counseling, a position on a large staff, or for a comprehensive ministry as pastor and church musician in a small church.

Programme Structure

  • Dean’s Scholarships are awarded for the academic year, September to May. They are renewable each year upon the annual evaluation of the recipient’s grade point average (3.5 minimum), character, and commitment to ministerial or other religious leadership. All awards are for a maximum of three academic years of full-time MDiv/MSM study. Dean’s Scholarships are awarded before initial enrollment in the School of Theology; however, money is not available to the student until the first day of classes.
