Admissions Guidelines for Masters Programs

If you are applying to the M.Div., MTS, or MA programs, you should have a bachelors degree (or its equivalent) from an accredited institution and have a grade point average of 2.67 (B-) or higher. To be well-prepared for the rigors of a Calvin Seminary education, your previous studies should include courses in English/literature, history, philosophy, natural science, social science and speech. Additional studies in Greek are recommended for M.Div applicants. You may still be admitted to Calvin Seminary without having taken all of these courses, but additional study in these areas may be required once you are in enrolled.
