About the Course

The Master of Divinity programme is designed to provide an integrated training for those entering the pastorate in diverse situations, including missionary service, church education ministries, teaching in theological institutions and other related types of Christian service.

The programme draws from various divisions of the theological disciplines, thus allowing the programme to give the student the option to concentrate on one area of emphasis or specialisation.

Students in the programme can pursue any one of the following emphases: Biblical Studies, Christian Education, Church History, Missions, Pastoral, Theological and Translation Studies.

On the other hand, a student can pursue a general area of study without taking any emphasis.

At the end of the course of study in the Master of Divinity programme, a student should be able to:

1)     Demonstrate a good general knowledge of the content of the Old and New Testaments.

2)    Interact biblically and intelligently with historical and current theological issues and positions both within the African and global contexts.

3)    Articulate clearly the call of Christians to world evangelisation and demonstrate that understanding through personal involvement.

4)    Demonstrate basic teaching skills in an area of ministry.

5)    Provide leadership in the church and para-church organizations.

6)     Define his/her call, gifts and abilities so as to function well in specific area of specialization.

7)    Live a godly life, serve others with humility and exemplify moral and ethical integrity in all dealings with fellow believers and society in general.
