What Sets Regent University School of Divinity Apart

We are a modern-day expression of the vibrant, biblically grounded seminary.

Regent University's School of Divinity is a diverse group of 21st century scholars committed to the rigorous study and application of theology, biblical interpretation and the renewing work of the Holy Spirit. We learn and serve together in a culture of inquiry where no topic is off limits.

The School of Divinity is committed to the education, formation and training of men and women for all contexts of vocational ministry. We encourage all seminarians to develop and use their God-given gifts for the benefit of the kingdom of God in the family, seminary, church and society. Since we are committed to holistic formation and ministry preparation we seek to foster an atmosphere of acceptance and respect, as demonstrated by the fruit of the Spirit.

Regent students and alumni represent 40 denominations and more than 110 countries. Our fully accredited online School of Divinity programs, with minimal residency requirements, allow students to study from nearly anywhere in the world. Many successfully blend school with their careers by taking classes part-time. Our student-to-faculty ratio of just 17:1 adds to student success by allowing our renowned faculty to mentor students as they earn their degrees and pursue new ministry opportunities.

Some universities ask you to choose between academic excellence, practical application and spiritual depth. Regent offers it all—making it a smart investment toward answering God's call. Whether you choose to become a minister, teach in the academy, join the military, or serve on the mission field, the School of Divinity enables you to tailor a degree to your specific calling. We invite you to explore your place with us.
