Apply: Master of Divinity students often speak of "answering a call.” It can be a call to ministry in a wide range of religious traditions, but there are many other calls they answer. Hospital and hospice chaplaincy. Social justice work. Nonprofit advocacy. Climate activism. Education. Humanitarian aid. Whatever calls you, a master of divinity degree from UUS Divinity School will open your mind and heart, and train you for a lifetime of service.

The three-year, full-time master of divinity (MDiv) program consists of rigorous intellectual scholarship combined with real-world experience, in settings such as churches, synagogues, mosques, hospitals, shelters, and other institutions of care. Students study their own faith tradition (and many others) alongside students from different traditions and backgrounds. Students who consider themselves “spiritual but not religious,” atheist, agnostic, or have embarked on their own spiritual formation, are a welcome and large segment of the UUS master of divinity cohort.

Students graduating with a master of divinity leave UUS with knowledge and experience that prepare them to serve within a religious community, to explore spiritually formative intellectual work, to evaluate and act on the needs and questions of religious and other communities, and to speak with both a pastoral and a public voice in many different settings.

An M.Div. is a graduate study for a professional degree designed to prepare seminarians for full-time ministry, diaconate and priestly ordinations or ministerial licensure. In the Master of Divinity program, one is exposed to a profound depth of religious inquiry and biblical and theological studies to increase one’s wisdom. From a scholarly perspective, students investigate the Christian faith and various religions and religious ideologies throughout the world pertaining to God.
The degree is framed for ecclesiastical programs for candidates to the Catholic priesthood, the Orthodox, Coptic, Oriental Churches and other related Catholic families according to their respective formations. With a Bachelor of Philosophy, which is the prerequisite for admission, or 18 credits of philosophical background (and/or postgraduate studies), one will do some classes before being admitted to M.DIV. The curriculum involves an in-depth study of the Christian Church, especially the Roman Catholic Church, with her ecclesiastical requirements for the priestly formation and admission to the clerical state or mere academic acquisition for pastors and lays faithful.
Each candidate at UUS understands or chooses one elective course from pastoral ministry minor or CPE programs. Besides, the candidate studies many aspects of the Ecumenical Theology of Pope John XXIII & Pope John Paul II, Theological tradition, and supervised practice of ministry. The degree program is open to candidates for ordained ministry in the Roman Catholic Church.
The degree conforms to the revised standards of the Association of Theological Schools, as well as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Program of Priestly Formation, which is integral to the Master of Divinity program and ministerial formation at UUS.

Course Requirement:

Reading proficiency in Latin may be demonstrated by completing two semesters of graduates’ language coursework or passing a written proficiency examination. This requirement m

MATTERS ARISING (Read and don't Attack)

The Federal Government on Wednesday expressed concern over the poor quality of PhD researches being churned out by Nigerian universities and huge copyright infringement, attributing them to some avoidable factors.
The government also expressed disappointment in what it described “meddlesome interlopers” in disciplines which they were not competent thereby making PhD students “victims of interminable doctoral programmes” and frustration.
The Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, represented by the Deputy ES (Academics), Dr. Suleiman Ramon-Yusuf, stated these in his keynote address delivered during the inauguration of the Doctoral Academy of Nigeria and training workshop on PhD research supervision with the theme: “Enhancing the capacities of doctoral supervisors for research supervision”, organised by the Committee of Provosts and Dean’s of Postgraduate Colleges and Schools in Nigerian Universities.
According to him, being a Professor does not mean that the person can supervise very well.
He said, “A litany of problems have been identified, ranging from poor quality of doctoral thesis occasioned by the fact that a lot of the PhD thesis were sponsored by staff who themselves are underpaid. We wonder how somebody who is not well paid will use part of his salary while his wife watches him to go and do PhD research.
“That was found as one of the major problems. One big elephant in the room is the issue of supervisors. In Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa, there is an assumption which has proven to be wrong – Because somebody is a Professor does not mean that he can supervise very well. We have issues of people who may be described as meddlesome interlopers in fields they are not competent to supervise. So, when you find such supervisors, students are victims of interminable doctoral programmes. You spend one year searching for a topic because the Professor is not grounded in the field and is not humble enough to say he does not understand the methodology because he doesn’t have time to read it before.
“So all of these problems lead to frustration and at the end, the product or quality of the school is not what it should be. And of course, if you put this against the backdrop of the critical role which doctoral research is expected to play in terms of innovation, creating new relevant knowledge by generating knowledge that is marketable for goods and services converted to goods and services, all of these have an effect in terms of establishing of nexus between doctoral training and national development as a whole.
“For us at the NUC, this step being taken by the committee is long in coming and it is very important because we hope that this will be the beginning of disaggregating the issues and challenges of post-doctoral education in Nigeria, doctoral supervision in terms of the timeliness, quality, and relevance of research projects.

“Of course, we are in the Committee of Vice Chancellors, which is leading in terms of dealing with the issue of plagiarism. So, most of the theses these days, if you check, there is a huge problem of copyright infringement.
“We are very hopeful that with this committee in place, we expect better output in terms of postgraduate and post-doctoral thesis, greater output in terms of quality of relevant research findings that are good entrepreneurs and impact on national development.
“I am delighted to hear that the academy would not just be training postgraduate students because the supervisors themselves require continuing training. I am aware that a very robust programme exist in at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa where they have acknowledged that you can be a Professor and published in this area ten years ago, your knowledge is definitely outdated.
“To avoid this transfer of obsolescence and outdated ideas, both the teachers and the students will continue to engage in constantly moving the frontiers of knowledge.
“It is on this note that we want to wish you well and to assure the NUC is solidly behind you in terms of taking this initiative forward and we are looking forward to a very tangible output.”
Delivering her goodwill message, the President of Nigerian Academy of Science, Prof. Ekanem Braide, said although the Nigerian government has declared many times that it was working to diversify the economy and move away from over-dependence on oil, “what is yet to be seen is our effort at increasing our research capacity as an unavoidable requirement for achieving such diversification.”
