Description Our Master of Divinity (MDiv) program provides both the theoretical and practical tools necessary for you to prepare for the rewarding and challenging profession of Christian service.In preparation for parish, institutional and administrative ministries, you’ll take courses in theology, biblical studies, counselling, ethics, church history, liturgics and administration. There are two options available in our Master of Divinity program: the contextual option is for those preparing for congregational ministry (the program includes congregational placements, community placements and a full-year internship); and the coursework option is for those who are already engaged in full-time ministry, and allows additional options for electives in your area of interest. Students admitted to Laurier’s Master of Divinity program are automatically entered into the coursework option, which includes 30 courses. If you’re preparing for professional ministry, you must also meet the internship and/or field education requirements of your church. If you’re preparing for ministry in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, you must successfully complete an internship. The internship is normally taken after your third year.
