The Master of Divinity Degree (MDIV) is the standard degree required by many church denominations prior to ordination to pastoral ministry. However, more and more the MDIV is also the degree of choice for men and women who are called to a variety of ministries beyond the pastoral one. Palmer’s MDIV has been crafted for both of these kinds of callings, with students able to choose between a “Pastoral Leadership” track and an “Adaptive Leadership” track.
“The most unique and enjoyable thing at Palmer is the in-depth study and never ending remarkable discovery about the history of God and His creation. Seeing the mysteries of God unveiling right before one's eyes with each book in the Bible has placed the passion for God into a different dimension and place in my heart. ”
