Largest M.Div. Class in Ten Years Enrolls at Luther

The numbers are in, and enrollment is up--the highest they have been in 10 years.

"I think many people have been praying and working to bring us to this glad day," said Patricia Lull, dean of students. "There really is a connection between those prayers to the Lord of the Harvest and the size and quality of the first year class."

The entering class includes 112 Master of Divinity students (a 30 percent increase from last year), 70 Master of Sacred Music students, and 41 Master of Theology, Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Ministry students. Total enrollment is 804 students, up from last fall's number of 747.
