Master of Divinity – Leadership

Liberty University’s M.Div. degree program and the Rawlings School of Divinity are both accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), unlike many other online Bible colleges or seminaries. This accreditation demonstrates Liberty’s commitment to academic excellence while providing an M.Div. degree program that is Christ-centered.
