The Graduate Studies Orientation introduces the learning objectives of the degree program and prepares students to re-enter the academic world while remaining involved in practical ministry. It provides a foundation for the process of discernment of ministry gifts and skills, and the deepening of Christian character, which are integral to readiness for ministry. Various assessment tools are a part of this process.
Graduate Studies Orientation is open to all students entering graduate studies including the MASF and Diploma programs. All Master of Divinity Students are required to attend the Graduate Studies Orientation as soon as possible after admission.
