The Divinity program is a traditional theological curriculum designed for men who are preparing to serve as pastors, Bible teachers, church-planters, or foreign missionaries. RBS seeks to provide the student with a thorough theological education. To this end we offer training in exegetical, historical, systematic, and practical theology. Moreover, RBS has designed our Divinity curriculum so that those wishing to pursue advanced degrees (Th.M., D.Min., Th.D., Ph.D.) can increase the minimum 97 credit requirement to as much as 108 credits. The student must complete the Divinity program within 8 years from the time of his enrollment.
