The Canadian Mennonite University will be offering the Master of Divinity degree this coming fall. It's a new program of its Graduate School of Theology and Ministry. 

Karl Koop, Professor of History and Theology at CMU and Director of the Graduate School of Theology and Ministry said that this is a three-year program.

It includes many courses that were taught before plus additional courses and different aspects of the program that have been added to this particular program now. "We're planning on beginning that in the fall of 2019," he said.

Koop said that students have been asking for this program and that the Master of Divinity is considered a "Gold Standard" for many denominations. He adds that because they also have a strong theological faculty at CMU it just made a lot of sense to move in this direction.

Koop explained that what makes the program distinct is that it's open to a variety of denominations. The students that attend CMU  come from a wide range of Christian traditions and the program would allow for other traditions, for students to bring in their own core courses if there were important courses that they would think would be particularly important for their own tradition.

"The program is really quite flexible and we're really quite open to working with other churches and with other denominations in servicing the wide range of Christian traditions that we have in Manitoba and across Canada," Koop said.
