Master of Arts & Master of Divinity


If you are looking for a convenient Master of Divinity or Master of Arts from an accredited university, consider an online program from Northwest Nazarene University. For over 80 years, NNU has been accredited continuously by the Northwest Commission on Colleges & Universities, the same respected regional accrediting body that certifies other leading educational institutions across the Pacific Northwest. NNU has also been granted associate membership with The Association of Theological Schools, which accredits seminaries and graduate schools of theology in the United States and Canada.

If a quality degree from a respected institution is a priority for you, then the Master of Divinity or Master of Arts from NNU is a great fit.

Jason Caddy

I have sensed a marked improvement in my ministry ever since I started my coursework just two years ago. The more exciting statement is that my congregation has told me they can see me growing. I have come to believe in NNU because of the diversity of professors who have helped me look at things from various angles while consistently pointing me back to Christ as the basis of my faith. I will count them as friends and mentors for the rest of my life.—Pastor Jason Caddy, Master of Arts in Missional Leadership
