Go Deeper: Pursue your Master of Divinity at Oklahoma Christian

Earn an M.Div. Degree in Oklahoma

You don’t have to go far to prepare for a future in ministry. The Master of Divinity (M.Div.) is the foundational degree in theological education. It provides students with broad training in biblical studies, history and theology, spiritual formation, and practical ministry skills, equipping you to excel as a minister or church leader. And if you want to become a chaplain, the M.Div. degree is for you.

Learn what it takes to lead

The M.Div. degree at Oklahoma Christian University requires the completion of 73 credit hours. Through elective courses, students focus in areas of ministry, textual study, or theology, complementing core learning in each of these areas. The capstone event in the M.Div. degree program is a comprehensive examination where you will demonstrate your ability to integrate graduate level biblical studies, theology, and ministry skills. For those in the optional thesis track, a 60-90 page thesis will be developed with the guidance of a faculty advisor.

To be considered for admission to OC’s Graduate School of Theology, you must have a completed bachelor’s degree (or are about to complete a bachelor’s degree) from a regionally accredited university with a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
