Divinity MDiv

The McGilvary College of Divinity exists to prepare ministers who are capable of moral leadership in Asian societies. The College of Divinity is conducting a thorough evaluation of its International Master of Divinity program. This process will take some time. Therefore, we will not be accepting new students during the 2016-2020 Academic Years. We expect to begin accepting new students in the 2021 Academic Year.
