Virginia Christian University offers Bachelor of Biblical Studies and Master of Divinity to prepare our students for the ministry God has prepared for them.
Master of Divinity
Graduate Studies of Virginia Christian University (VACU School of Theology) offers the Master of Divinity program, whose purpose is to train students in the Word of God and to train them to become faithful ministers in the Church of Christ. More specifically, the program equips students with the Reformed worldview, trains them to correctly interpret God’s Word, nurtures them to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, help them to be skillful at applying the Word of God in every area of ministry, and to become ‘all to all’ in the context of the life and the culture of the congregation. The program requires three years of full-time study, and is designed to provide a basic professional foundation for the entry-level pastoral position within the Christian ministry. The graduate will acquire the professional competence necessary for serving as a pastor, missionary, chaplain, campus ministry director, associate pastor, ministry-related counselor, evangelist, religious-subject instructor, or similar professions.
The undergraduate program at VACU, the Bachelor in Biblical Studies(B.BS.), prepares students for further study in seminary or graduate school. The student is given opportunity to take advanced language courses usually required for entrance into VACU. This program gives students exposure to many areas of ministry in church or mission. A broad range of courses provides the basic preparation needed for ministry.
