Fully Online Master of Divinity Now Available

Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary is pleased to announce that it is now offering an online Master of Divinity (MDiv) that is fully accredited by both the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This 90-hour MDiv program allows students to earn a seminary degree from anywhere in the world without taking them out of their current life and ministry.

This online program links students with Golden Gate’s faculty in order to create a community of global learners. It integrates a wide variety of online methods including graphic and video lectures, video and audio chats, threaded email discussions, shared applications, online exams, and posting shared research.

“Most students today choose from a variety of delivery options when creating their class schedule – traditional semester-length classes, short-term classes, hybrid classes, and fully online classes. Being able to offer an online degree – as well all the other formats – creates virtually unlimited options for students to customize their learning plan,” said Dr. Jeff Iorg, Seminary president. “Having the full Master of Divinity degree online will make training available to people in remote places who otherwise cannot access the traditional programs Golden Gate offers.”

“Golden Gate Seminary has extensive experience doing effective ministry training using the tool of online education,” added Dr. Michael Martin, Vice President of Academic Affairs. “Our first online class was offered in 1998, and our commitment is always to provide a high quality education with the maximum student-to-professor and peer-to-peer interaction.”

These courses are all taught by Golden Gate professors. Our commitment to excellence includes access to qualified librarians who assist students in finding the best databases and electronic works in the Seminary’s collection. Class size is limited to 24 students to ensure a high quality educational experience.

These online classes are delivered in 8-week and 15-week formats. Apply for admission now as the first session begins soon. Transfer credit is available. Apply online  or call toll-free 888-442-8701 for more information.
