Master of Divinity



Beeson Divinity School strives to prepare God-called men and women for Christian ministry. We believe that God’s servants learn best in a community environment where, through face-to-face encounters, we help one another love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. We believe the Bible is God’s word written and thus fully trustworthy and fully able to teach us how to serve our Lord and his people. 

Given these convictions, we mentor students in the classroom, in small groups, and individually. One major way we engage in mentoring is through the offering of a curriculum that helps students gain an ever-deepening grasp and integration of the Bible, Theology, Spiritual Disciplines, and Pastoral Service.

At Beeson we do not pit the academic against the practical. Rather, we strive to make our curriculum an integrated tool for shaping ministers of the gospel. The curriculum may be viewed as parts of a whole that share a common core. Students who have taken B.A. or other courses that correspond to courses in the curriculum may contact the Associate Dean to discuss advanced standing. Consult the current Beeson Divinity School Bulletin for a complete list of pre-requisites for courses.
