M.Div. with Christian Ethics The Christian Ethics track provides specialized academic training that prepares men and women to impact the culture for Christ through prophetic moral witness and service in a variety of settings. Some choose this program to enhance qualifications for further academic study. Most, however, choose this program to add focus to preparation for ministry in the local church, on the mission field, in denominational service, or to prepare for parachurch ministry. The M.Div. with Ethics can be completed in 3 years alone or a student may complete both the M.Div. with Ethics and the M.A. (Ethics, Theology, and Culture) with an additional year of study.
