Joint Bachelor of Arts and Master of Divinity between the University of Sioux Falls and Sioux Falls Seminary – The 3-3 Program The combined B.A./M.Div. degree program offered by the University of Sioux Falls and Sioux Falls Seminary is known as the 3-3 Program because it involves three years of study at the University of Sioux Falls and three years of study at Sioux Falls Seminary. The 3-3 Program is an accelerated program for students of noteworthy ability. It reduces by one year the time required to complete university and seminary training. After three years (93 semester hours) in a carefully planned pre-theological program that is broadly based in the liberal arts (see course requirements below), the student begins studies at the Seminary in the regular Master of Divinity program. Upon completion of the student’s first year of seminary studies (31 semester hours applicable toward the M.Div. degree), he or she receives the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Theology and Biblical Studies from the University of Sioux Falls. At the end of the sixth year, that is, upon completion of the remaining semester hours of the seminary's M.Div. program, he or she receives the Master of Divinity degree from Sioux Falls Seminary. A student registering for the joint program must apply for preenrollment in the seminary and must achieve a 3.25 cumulative GPA in his or her undergraduate coursework by the end of the three years at USF to remain in the program.
