The MDiv programme enables university graduates to obtain comprehensive theological knowledge, gain ministry skills, and specialize in a chosen discipline. Thus, the degree both prepares students for Christian ministry and qualifies them to teach at graduate (BTh) level.
An MDiv fulfills the entry requirements of the Asia Theological Association (ATA) for MTh. SAIACS students who have completed MA can opt to add on a third year and gain an MDiv degree, thus making themselves eligible for MTh.
The entry requirements are as for the MA (TS). Those with MA (Th) offered by SAIACS may directly enter the third year and graduate with MA-TS (Advanced).
