MASTER'S IS AN INDEPENDENT DISTANCE EDUCATION DIVINITY SCHOOL. We are a Divinity School for working adults. Master's offers a wide range of certificate and degree programs that can be earned through online directed study courses, short intensive online live classes, and brief residency group learning seminars. Our unique combination of study choices makes it possible to earn a ministry degree without being required to relocate.
OUR HISTORY. The Divinity School was founded in 1999 by the leadership team of Christian Education Enterprises (CEE, Inc.). CEE, Inc. has been providing Christian education programs since 1979. One of the very early pioneers in online study programs, The Master's Touch Self-study Library was started in 1996. The goal was to create a totally Internet delivered learning center providing free theological distance education courses to students around the world. At that time, resources and office facilities were leased from a nearby Seminary.
In March of 1999, as a result of the success of the Master's Touch Self-study Library, Master's Divinity School and Master's Graduate School of Divinity were officially structured under the charter of Christian Education Enterprises, Inc. We were the first fully free-standing Internet-only theological school in America to be organized under the title Divinity School.
The rapid growth that followed, and the
persistent misrepresentation that Master's was a division of the Seminary
from which facilities were leased, necessitated that the Divinity School
seek other housing and resource arrangements. Therefore, in April of
2001, Master's purchased its own state-of-the-art office complex, and moved to
its present location. By 2005, Master's was providing academic
programs to students in seventy world areas. In September of 2006,
in order to keep pace with the changing nature of theological distance
education around the world, the institution was renamed as Master's
International School of Divinity.
THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AT MASTER'S ARE BIBLE-BASED. We make no apology for proclaiming the Bible as the totally inerrant Word of God. Our position is well stated in an historic audio archive that was entrusted to Master's. Click HERE for more information, and to listen (highly recommended).
