Master of Divinity degree with a cognate in Chaplaincy

Master of Divinity - Chaplaincy (93 credit hours)

Liberty University’s Master of Divinity degree program, with a concentration in Chaplaincy, equips you to be a faithful steward of the gospel and to develop specific ministry skills, strategies and Christian character relevant for successful ministry as a military or civilian chaplain. Through the program you will examine the theological and cultural issues relevant for formal and informal chaplaincy settings, as well as the similarities and differences among the various types of chaplaincies.

Military Chaplaincy

Military chaplains are commissioned military officers, and each branch of the military has chaplains who serve in Active Duty or in the Reserves. Serving in a chaplaincy role represents a positive response to God’s calling to serve in a rewarding and fruitful ministry. 

Master of Arts in Religion to Master of Divinity

Students who have graduated with the M.A.R. degree may transfer all 45 hours, as applicable, into the M.Div. program. The M.Div. degree will be conferred upon completion of all course requirements for both degrees.
