Master of Divinity― 72 credit hrs
BIBLCAL INTERPRETATION & PREACHING— Since this is the heart of ministry, IUS is vigilant in offering strong but straightforward curriculum in hermeneutics, exegesis and preaching, with 8 courses to be offered. Digging deep yields both truth and treasures!
THEOLOGY & CHURCH HISTORY— Correct biblical doctrine and its historical development is an essential and core stabilizer to the faith, and can be unexpectedly fascinating and relevant. Especially important also, is our commitment to exposing students to a diversity of scholarly perspectives while maintaining core Christian tenets.
ETHICS & LEADERSHIP— Innovative leadership skills can revolutionize a ministry, but ethical confusion can tear it apart. Today’s ministers need to be equipped to dismantle stagnation, navigate contemporary issues, and meet ethical and moral challenges with courage.
FOCUS— IUS purposely emphasizes subject areas which enrollees tell us need shoring up or strengthening… such as Hermeneutics, World Religious Systems, Apologetics, Evangelism, Spiritual Freedom, Counseling, the Ministry of the Holy Spirit, and alternative Eschatological Perspectives.
TRANSFORMATION— While seminary in general tends to be highly educational, it’s our desire for students to experience transformation as well. IUS strives to provide such opportunity along the way.
