Regent University's School of Divinity supports those called to the frontlines of 21st century ministry — both within the local church and beyond its borders — through chaplaincy, academia, missions, or nonprofit or corporate work. You will enjoy challenging, biblically focused seminary programs that fulfill the credentials you need to advance in your field and effectively bring Christ to the world. You will also enjoy the convenience of course structures best suited to your life, with classes available on campus and online with no residencies for master's-level students and minimal residences for doctoral-level students.

Regent's School of Divinity is fully accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and features a team of renowned faculty ready to mentor you as you bridge the gap between theological knowledge and practical ministry. Just as a broad cross-section of people have been used throughout the history of the Church to fulfill the Great Commission, Regent's faculty, students and alumni represent a range of denominations, ethnicities and backgrounds, united by the renewing work of the Holy Spirit. Regent's emphasis on rigorous academics, biblical integrity and the spiritual formation of our students ensures our graduates are Christian leaders fully equipped to put inspired ideas into practice.

Come be changed; then go out and change the world. Our programs, faculty and students put us among the leaders of Virginia seminaries and theological colleges. Contact us for the information you need to get started today.
