The Online Master of Divinity (Openseminary) (eMDiv) is built around six church practices and designed for people in ministry It offers an innovative and fresh approach for doing theology in ministry context. The course departs from the standard mode of theological curriculum, which is divided up into the four areas of biblical studies, history, theology and practical/pastoral studies. However, through the Openseminary(TM) approach, the eMDiv uses six key dimensions of church practice as windows through which biblical, historical, theological and contemporary issues are examined. Carefully selected foundational courses enable students to go deeper in the six dimensions of church practice. It is offered fully online or as a hybrid online and on-campus.
