Doctor of Ministry
Innovation, flexibility, and education at your pace- this is South University’s Doctor of Ministry (DMin) program. The DMin program provides the ability to help ministry leaders enhance their skills, and offers an innovative solution to earn Ministry’s highest degree. Students can move from their Bachelor’s degree through the DMin program toward their doctorate, without needing to spend years on a separate Master’s degree program.
The Doctor of Ministry degree at South University offers both a Standard Track and Advanced Track* option. The DMin program helps to develop a student’s understanding of the nature and purpose of ministry, enhance the student’s competencies in ministry skills, and promote the student’s growth in spiritual maturity. Foundational courses provide an introduction and overview to the various disciplines required for effective ministry leadership. Ministry Skills courses, advanced Ministry Studies courses, and the Final Project further integrate biblical and theological perspectives into the practice of ministry. Students will also gain lifelong learning skills that will enable them to continue their personal, intellectual and professional growth. In addition, graduates will retain access to the Logos theological library, which provides all course texts and research materials for their ministry after graduation.
*Average time to completion for continuously enrolled students full-time. Changing programs, taking remedial courses, taking time off from coursework, registering for fewer hours or unsuccessful attempts at course completion will increase the total length of the program and overall cost of education from what is disclosed.
South University does not promise or guarantee employment.
