About this course
The Master of Divinity (MDiv) is a three-year professional degree preparing students for Church ministry. It offers appropriate preparation for those intending to serve in lay ecclesial ministries. Those students intending to serve as ordained presbyters in the Catholic Church will be required to complete an additional year of studies in theological subjects and ministerial training. Note that completion of the MDiv degree does not entitle the recipient to ordination. Admission to ordination is the decision of local diocesan ordinaries or superiors of religious orders who may have further requirements or expectations.
