Undergraduate Program

Bachelor of Divinity

A Call to Engage is a Call to Prepare

A Bachelor of Divinity from Emmaus University can help prepare you to engage your culture, whether it be Haiti, the Caribbean, or beyond for the cause of Christ.

The Bachelor of Divinity (BDiv) Program prepares students to be a redemptive witness for Christ in the culture that they are called to minister to by emphasizing the relevant authority of the Word of God, giving students a thorough grounding in the truth of God’s word, and teaching the Bible in the context of its setting.

The BDiv program also focuses on developing leaders for the ministry of discipleship and formation—understanding the biblical, educational, and organizational principles at the foundations of effective ministry.

Academic programs at Emmaus are contextualized to the Caribbean for maximum transformational impact.
