Hello to all: I hope God's blessing in Christ is abiding on you and your work this Lord's Day. I think I know the answer to the question but I will throw it out to help me clear the smoke away, if you will allow a poor metaphor. What are (is) the differences, if any (or all), in a Master of Divinity done at different types of institutions say: 1. A university that has a graduate school of religion; I am thinking here about my own alma mater, Harding University Graduate School of Religion. 2. A university that has a seminary or Divinity School of its own; I am thinking here about Vanderbilt University, Duke University, Harvard University, or Beeson Divinity School at Samford U. in Alabama. 3. A stand alone evangelical or denominational seminary; I am thinking here of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (also my alma mater), TEDS (Trinity Evangelical Divinity School), Gordon-Conwell, etc. Of course I have a good idea, I just need some clarification. If you do not think there is any difference in the educational philosophy differences other than the obvious ones, then you have not attended one of the other genre types named. I think this will bring about some interesting discussions and may help some who know not the differences themselves. I am not sure this question has ever been asked before. I look forward to your feedback. "That is all!"
