Structure of the DMin Program
The Doctor of Ministry is a professional doctoral degree designed for full-time professionals in the context of their ministry. A variety of concentrations is offered, delivered in the cohort format. Occasional cohorts may be offered using Spanish as the language of instruction. Various concentrations may be offered for cohorts in the context of their ministry outside the North American Division.
The program is built on the foundation of the MDiv degree, the educational equivalent, or an alternative professional portfolio, and is comprised of a total of 32 semester credits, 25 of which are for modules and course work, and seven for the project.
(Previous to the fall semester of 2019, this structure was slightly different, with 26 credits for course work and six credits associated with the project.)
