Not sure which program to pursue? We can help with that.

Master of Divinity: This degree is a three-year professional degree program for people who are seeking holy orders in the NALC or another denomination.

Master of Arts in Religion: This degree is a two-year academic degree that is designed for those who are called to a teaching ministry or to further academic work.

Diploma in Lutheran Studies: This program is made up of our core Lutheran classes and is designed to prepare students who have another theological graduate degree that is not from a Lutheran seminary, thus helping the student prepare for service in the NALC or another Lutheran denomination.

Certificate in Lutheran Studies: This program is designed for lay-Christians who are interested in deepening their knowledge of our faith and of Lutheran tradition and theology.
