Associate of Divinity

The Associate of Divinity is a postsecondary professional degree intended for persons who hold a high school diploma or equivalency certificate, but who have not completed a baccalaureate degree.  This program requires sixty semester hours of academic credit for graduation.
 
Objectives
The educational and career goals of the Associate of Divinity include training students for effective ministry as pastors, associate pastors, church planters, missionary or evangelist in the New York area and across the Northeast.
 
The Associate of Divinity is designed to provide quality ministry training for students who will pursue no further studies beyond it and be transferable into an accredited Bachelors program if the student chooses. It will also offer college level ministry training to students with GED or high school diplomas.

Each student in the Associate of Divinity program is required to complete a minimum of fifteen semester hours of general education courses, with at least one course in each of three areas: the humanities or fine arts, the social or behavioral sciences, and the natural sciences or mathematics. The general education courses may be transferred from another postsecondary institution, or they may be completed within the required course structure of the Associate of Divinity.
