The Anderson University School of Theology Doctor of Ministry Degree Program has been encouraging and inspiring the lives of those in professional ministry, and the places they serve, for two decades. A new curriculum was in place as we began the 2014-15 academic year. This curriculum was born from conversations with the broader church and gives focus to the seminary’s commitment to Biblical Reconciliation. The Program is enriched as we continue to pledge ourselves to studying and interacting with individuals unlike oneself and the intimacy of this learning community. This pledge encourages an environment that offers cultural, denominational, gender, racial, geographical, and professional diversity.
Our Doctor of Ministry degree represents a high standard of professional preparation. This DMin course of study is accredited by the Association of Theology Seminaries (ATS) and by the Commission on Higher Education. Full acceptance into the program requires:
- The Master of Divinity (MDiv) or its equivalent (72 semester hours of master-level work).
- A minimum GPA of 3.0 in previous masters work.
- At least three years of full-time professional ministry following or concurrent with masters work.
The result of these standards provides the opportunity for you to study alongside seasoned ministers and professionals in ministry. You will be the beneficiary of both their theological education and their professional experiences.
We are also pleased to offer opportunities for those without an MDiv to complete the equivalency work work with the Anderson University School of Theology. Contact us for a personal assessment of completing an equivalency.
