Bexley Hall Seminary is accredited to offer the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree from the Association of Theological Schools. We offer the M.Div. program in partnership with Trinity Lutheran Seminary. We also offer a Certificate in Anglican Studies for people seeking ordination in the Episcopal Church who did their graduate theological education in a seminary affiliated with another religious tradition.
The Master of Divinity (M.Div.) Degree
The M.Div. is a three-year program for persons preparing for the ordained priesthood of the Episcopal Church. This program combines deep academic study and reflection with spiritual and pastoral formation and the practice of ministry in the local church. You'll take courses in the Scriptures, Church History, Contemporary Society, Theology and Ethics, Liturgics and Preaching, and Ascetical and Pastoral Theology. The integration of your coursework, your spiritual life and your pastoral experiences are the hallmark of a seminary education, and equips you for effective ministry in today's Church.
The Certificate in Anglican Studies

You will take courses with students in our degree programs, with a focus on what makes our Anglican identity distinctive. Courses include English and American Church History, Liturgics, Ascetical Theology and Contemporary Anglican Parishes.
