Thank you for your interest in Beeson Divinity School! Beeson is a special community that will shape your worship of the Lord, your view of the church and your future ministry. Uniquely evangelical and purposefully interdenominational, Beeson provides a rich theological education in personal community that informs gospel-centered ministry. With an intentionally small faculty to student ratio (1:7), you will learn from our world-renowned faculty in the classroom, student commons, and beyond. You also will develop friendships that will encourage you at Beeson and support you for years to come. As a Beeson alum, I can personally attest to the tremendous impact the Beeson faculty and my fellow students had upon my spiritual growth.
Our flagship degree is the Master of Divinity. At Beeson, we believe strongly that the M.Div. most adequately prepares you for ministry in many contexts. Our M.Div. graduates serve as local church pastors, missionaries, writers, teachers and counselors, all in service to the church of Jesus Christ. For laypersons or some international students interested in enriching their theological knowledge, we offer the Masters of Arts in Theological Studies. Either degree can be paired with a number of other graduate degrees at Samford University. Opportunities for such academic integration, the excellent Davis Library, and the beautiful Samford campus are a few of the many advantages of studying for ministry at Beeson Divinity School.
I would love to talk with you further about our admission process and answer any questions you might have. I also encourage you to visit our campus and experience Beeson for yourself, as that is the best way to really understand the Beeson difference. Our staff will be happy to arrange a visit. We look forward to welcoming you to Beeson!
