Professional Licensure Disclosure

Programs in the School of Theology meet the educational requirements for denominational ordination, which are not regulated by any states, due to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree provides the education necessary for ordination in several Christian denominations: the Free Methodist Church; the United Methodist Church; the Presbyterian Church in the USA; and others. These ordination requirements do not differ by state, only by denomination.
