The class of 2016 consists of forty-eight students in four degree programs: thirty-nine received the Master of Divinity degree; four, the Master of Arts (Theological Studies) degree; one, the Master of Arts in Ministry Practice degree; and four, the Doctor of Ministry degree. Many of the candidates for the Master of Divinity degree—a prerequisite to parish ministry in most denominations—have already accepted calls to churches around the country.
