Exegetical Studies, M.Div.

Overview

From time to time, we have students who enroll at Grace Seminary who love the biblical languages and desire to focus more extensively in Greek and Hebrew. This concentration provides a student with in-depth exegetical training.

The Exegetical Studies track of the 90-hour Master of Divinity degree allows students to deepen their exegetical and language skills. This program would be appropriate for those who wish to move on to further academic training after completing their Master of Divinity or for those who envision a ministry of primarily preaching and teaching.

All five concentrations have a strong component of practical field experience, a six-hour apprenticeship, built into the requirements.
