|Master of Divinity|
The Master of Divinity is an internationally recognized degree for Pastoral Ministry. MDiv (Online) is intended for those who already have an undergraduate background of ministerial studies. As such, this program is composed of 72 semester-hours of study. This online modality is designed for working pastors so only five courses are offered each year, with each course being studied in eight to nine weeks. The normal duration of this program is less than five (5) years, plus any time needed to meet AIIAS English proficiency, prerequisites or other requirements.
MDiv may also be earned by Master of Ministry (MMin) graduates of AIIAS as an upgrade program. Since MMin is 36 credits or 50% of the MDiv (Online) curriculum, an MDiv upgrade may consist of the remaining 36 credits of courses that were not taken in the MMin program. The normal duration of the upgrade is three years, plus any time needed to meet prerequisites or other requirements.
Credit by Transfer
The maximum credits by transfer and the challenge of courses through proficiency tests cannot exceed eighteen semester hours.
