New Hybrid MDiv Offered

   Campus News | Posted on November 15, 2017

The Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary of Andrews University has released a new hybrid Master of Divinity (MDiv) course delivery option. The hybrid MDiv makes the degree more accessible to students by allowing them to earn up to 50 percent of their required credits off-campus.

Previously, MDiv students were required to spend two to three years on campus to com-plete their program. Now, with the hybrid MDiv course delivery option, students can decrease their residency time by up to 50 percent by utilizing online courses, intensive courses taught on-campus, and the Master of Pastoral Ministry courses offered in various unions. The remaining required credits can be earned on-campus through intensives and full semester courses.

“The hybrid MDiv is an exciting new opportunity,” said Fernando Ortiz, MDiv program director. “It allows busy professionals who are eager to start their Master of Divinity, but cannot immediately transition to the Seminary, to begin their program from home. In addition, on-campus students who need to return to their conferences sooner than expected can complete their degree remotely. It opens up a world of options for students, pastors and conference administrators.”
