Credit Hours:

The Master of Divinity in Ecclesial Theology (85 Hours) is Emmaus’ most comprehensive program. Beyond the core disciplines of the MATS, the Emmaus MDiv takes a further dive into the field of ecclesial theology—that is, how theology is rooted in and is meant to serve the church. The MDiv provides men and women with robust theological acumen, rich spiritual formation, and practical ministry skills relevant to their tradition to serve Christ, His church, and His kingdom.
