Master of Divinity (M.Div.) 

The Master of Divinity degree program is designed for students interested in preparing for ministry as an ordained pastor. Students seeking to serve in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America should consider beginning the candidacy process with their synodical candidacy committee. Wartburg Theological Seminary is a worship-centered community of critical theological reflection where learning leads to mission and mission informs learning. Wartburg Seminary provides a high quality academic education and has a dedicated and excellent faculty and staff to prepare leaders for God’s mission in the world through the church.

We offer two options to complete a Master of Divinity Degree: Residential Program and Distributed Learning Program. For more information about the Master of Divinity Degree please view our current catalog. We also offer the option to include a concentration in Youth, Culture and Mission or Hispanic Ministry.

Master of Divinity Residential Program

Master of Divinity Distributed Learning Program

The curriculum of the Master of Divinity program at Wartburg Seminary has been designed to prepare "every graduate as a missionary," and this continues to remain our focus as we prepare missional leaders for the 21st century.

Wartburg also welcomes Episcopal students to the Master of Divinity program through a formal agreement with Seabury Western Seminary that allows Episcopal students to complete all degree requirements, including Episcopal requirements, without adding to the length of the program.
