Four-Year Program Plan for the Master of Divinity Program

The Crown Online M.Div. is flexible in that students with no transfer work can complete the degree in 2.5, 3, or 4 years. These flexible completion plans are designed to fit the life needs of our students. Those working full-time may want to choose a 4 year completion plan while others may be able to dedicate their full-time efforts to graduate school thus completing the degree in 2.5 years. With Crown’s block tuition plan, many students choose the 3 year completion plan in order to save time and money in their pursuit of the M.Div.
