    • Christian Ministry
    • Old Testament Hebrew

Master of Divinity (M.Div.) Degree

The Master of Divinity degree has been designed to train students to effectively teach, preach, and minister skillfully from the Scriptures.  Prospective students, for this degree, must fulfill the prerequisite of having a bachelor’s degree in order to earn the M.Div. degree.   Students will become well-equipped to engage in Christ-centered, gospel ministry.  Graduates will fill their toolbelt with 105 semester-hours of knowledge and skills necessary to handle the primary aspects of theology, including:  biblical, exegetical, historical, pastoral and systematic.  

Diploma In Biblical Studies Program

The Diploma in Biblical Studies is earned through the identical program to that of the M.Div.  However, students enrolling in this program will not yet have earned a bachelor’s degree.  Admittance into this program requires that the prospective student be able to function at a high/collegiate academic level.  Solid reading comprehension skills and the ability to communicate well both orally and in writing are essential.  Upon completion of this program graduates are well-prepared for Christian ministry.  While SdCS is not an ordaining authority, our path of preparation has proven to be a great step forward toward ordination in many Reformed denominations.


The Diploma in Biblical Studies may be upgraded to a Master of Divinity.  Please refer to the Student Handbook for a description of how this may be accomplished.

Certificate Programs

The Certificates we offer are designed to give participating students a taste of aspects of ministry preparation.  These programs are essentially one complete semester (15-16 credit hours) of courses.  Here is a snapshot of the three certificate program requirements:
