St. Mary's Seminary & University

Master of Divinity Partnership


St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute has partnered with Lancaster Theological Seminary to create a path to the Master of Divinity.  Students will take the first half of their MDiv coursework from the Ecumenical Institute, then complete the degree in Lancaster’s accessible weekend program.

Students take 12 courses (36 credits) at the EI (11 required and 1 elective), which must be completed within four years. Students then take the final 39 credits at Lancaster over a four year period. The weekend classes at Lancaster meet on Friday nights or Saturday mornings (with lodging available for those who need it).

Lancaster’s newly revised MDiv is fully accredited and is approved for United Methodists pursuing ordination.  Please contact us for details or to schedule an appointment.
