Admissions & Aid
As an ecumenical, university-based divinity school committed to the faith that brought the church into being, we believe that Vanderbilt is a place to ask big questions, grow intellectually and spiritually, and prepare for diverse ministry and professional vocations.
Vanderbilt Divinity School offers the Master of Divinity (M.Div.), the Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.), and the Master of Theology (Th.M.), as well as dual degree programs with Vanderbilt Law School (J.D.), School of Medicine (M.D.), School of Nursing (MSN), Owen Graduate School of Management (MBA), and Peabody College of Education (M.A.). Vanderbilt Divinity School also offers the Doctor of Ministry in Integrative Chaplaincy (D.Min.).
Divinity students can take classes in all 10 of Vanderbilt's colleges and schools as well as the School of Theology at Sewanee: The University of the South. If you're looking for a flexible, interdisciplinary program, this is the right place for you.
