Calvin Theological Seminary offers MDiv, MA, and MTS programs that prepare people for vibrant Christian ministry in a variety of contexts. These degree programs are available on our beautiful campus in Grand Rapids, Michigan, or through a high-quality hybrid distance education program. All admitted students to these programs are eligible to be considered for scholarships.

Students who complete the Bachelor of Divinity program through Christian Leaders Institute are eligible to apply for admission to the MDiv, MA, or MTS program at Calvin Theological Seminary. The recommended preparation for those who intend to apply for the MDiv or MTS program is one course each in English and literature and two courses each in history, philosophy, natural science, social science, and speech. In addition, you are encouraged to take four semesters of Greek. Because of CLI’s accreditation status, a limited number of students can be accepted under this arrangement.

If you already have an accredited bachelor’s degree and your goals include seminary study, Calvin Theological Seminary offers opportunities for advanced standing for work done at Christian Leaders Institute.
