Online Chaplaincy Degrees

Do you feel called to minister on the “frontlines” of the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, professional or semi-professional sports, or in corporate environments? Bring the love of Christ into many hard-to-reach places with an online degree in chaplaincy from Liberty University. 

As a chaplain, you’ll have the unique opportunity to pursue a ministry role in a non-ministry setting, providing guidance and hope to those who might otherwise not seek out a Christian ministry. If you want to continue your biblical training and develop in-demand skills in biblical counseling and ministry, Liberty’s chaplaincy programs offer you the training you need.

All of our chaplaincy programs are offered through our Rawlings School of Divinity. And because we are committed to Training Champions for Christ, we want to make it easier for you to complete your program. As a full-time student, you will receive our discounted seminary block rate of $2,750 (applies to 9-15 hours) per semester! You’ll also have the opportunity to take exams for specific course topics to demonstrate your mastery and can potentially cover up to 30 credit hours of graduate content through Liberty’s Institutional Challenge Exams.

At Liberty, we believe in putting a world-class Christian education within reach — so our tuition rates have been frozen for 6 years and counting!

Why We’re Nonprofit

As a nonprofit (not-for-profit) university, Liberty is in the business of training skilled professionals to make a difference in the world – not gaining profit, revenue, or producing dividends for shareholders. In keeping with our commitment to your education, we invest our resources back into degree programs and into your student experience.

While many other online colleges have raised tuition, Liberty has been able to keep costs low as a nonprofit university and has not increased tuition for 6 straight years. Lower tuition means less student loan debt for students.

For Liberty University, nonprofit is more than a status; it is a valuable opportunity to invest in the lives of students who will go out and impact the world.
