Biblical Worldview

Study and Work

Calvary’s Study Work Program (SWP) provides employment opportunities to help cover educational costs while providing real world work experiences.

Through Calvary University’s blended model of education, students can earn their online seminary degree from virtually anywhere in the world. Almost all campus classes are video recorded  in every seminary degree program so that onsite and online students can access (asynchronously) the course lectures and all course materials in Calvary’s Online Campus (using the Canvas Learning Management System).

This allows online students to enjoy essentially the same educational experience as onsite students. Online students have the same access to Calvary’s excellent faculty; they collaborate together with onsite students; and because onsite and online students all learn together, they all get the best of both – face-to-face and online – worlds.

Calvary University is committed to providing the highest quality online education, so that students can earn an accredited online undergraduate degree or an accredited online graduate degree, and you can do so knowing that you are getting the very highest quality of education. No matter where you are in the world, Calvary has an online degree program that is designed to fit your needs and to give you the tools you need to live and serve in the church and in the world according to a biblical worldview.

Master of Divinity (M.Div) – Pastoral Studies – 90 Credit Hours

Comprehensive Approach

The Master of Divinity program serves to provide solid preparation for pastoral ministry, ministry on the mission field, and chaplaincy. Other ministry goals, such as Christian education, campus ministry, and counseling will also benefit from the biblical and theological foundation offered in the Master of Divinity program. Advance standing is granted for those who have adequate undergraduate preparation in the specified areas.

The Master of Divinity program builds on any of the M.A. programs of the Seminary. Because both the Greek and Hebrew languages are required for this program, it fits better with either the N.T. or O.T. programs. However, because the core is the same for all M.A. programs, any M.A. degree may be applied toward the M.Div. degree.

Advanced Standing Option

Graduates from Christian colleges that hold a doctrinal position similar to Calvary’s may petition to have up to 15 credit hours waived (i.e., reducing the total hours required) if they have earned at least a B in equivalent upper-level (junior or senior) courses in the following areas: Hebrew (up to 8 hours); Greek (second-year or above; up to 8 hours); biblical language electives (second-year or above; up to 6 hours); Bible exposition electives (up to 6 hours); theology electives (up to 4 hours); homiletics (up to 3 hours); and Bible, biblical language, or theology electives (up to 6 hours).

Objectives

  • That the student be prepared for ministry.
  • That in the study of Scripture, the student applies correct linguistic and hermeneutical skills.
  • That the student interprets Scripture from a consistently literal grammatical historical perspective.
  • That the student fashions a ministry philosophy and practice based on an accurate theological foundation.
