- APPLY TO A PROGRAM
As a graduate theological college, we are dedicated to preparing men and women to serve within the church community. To do so, we offer three possible programs of study.
The Master of Divinity degree is widely recognized as the foundational program to prepare persons for ordained ministry and pastoral leadership in congregations and other settings.
The Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation prepares persons to offer leadership in spiritual formation in congregations and other settings, which may include congregational formation ministries, lay leadership training, spiritual direction and retreat ministries.
The Doctor of Ministry degree at Carey Theological College is intended to: equip ministers to reach a higher level of effectiveness in the practice of ministry, deepen their awareness of the theological framework out of which their ministry grows, and enhance life and ministry in the setting which the minister serves.
The Advanced Diploma in Preaching aims to equip and empower preachers to preach the good news, with greater insight into the task of preaching, and with greater understanding of the news preachers preach. It is a 4-course doctoral diploma.
The teaching and learning provided in each program suits the needs and interest of our students. Course options include:
– Classroom settings for onsite intensive courses (four to five days),
– Weekend and weeknight courses,
– Online courses, and
– Hybrid courses (a mix of online and onsite).
Most courses run for 10 weeks with the exception of practicums and CSF 500 & CSF 600/610. In the case of hybrid courses, Carey has an online component before and after the onsite intensive. Students are advised to read through the syllabus of a course prior to registering. Course syllabi are found under ‘Courses’. They should register a minimum of two weeks prior to the beginning of the term and to purchase their textbooks well in advance.
