The Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministries/Master of Divinity allows students to earn a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in only five years. The degree is designed for students who have been called to work in the church or mission field.

What classes will I take?

Anderson University’s BA/MDiv program is unique in that students will complete all liberal arts requirements within the first four years, as well as coursework for the undergraduate major. Courses for the major will include graduate and undergraduate classes, including the following:

  • Hermeneutics
  • Biblical languages
  • Homiletics
  • Methods/Exegesis
  • Bible
  • Theology
  • Church History
  • Pastoral Leadership

During the final year of the program, students focus only on graduate coursework.

Complete course list coming soon!

What experiences will I have?

Outside of the classroom, students in the BA/MDiv program are required to complete two internships. One will be the Clinical Pastoral Education component, where students will spend time working in chaplaincy. The second will be an internship with a church or mission.
