Students in Doctor of Ministry tracks complete pre-thesis coursework in three years. Classes consist of two basic types: Seminar courses and online courses.
- Seminar courses follow a hybrid learning model, combining online education with in-class time during summer residencies.
- Online integrative courses entail specific engagement with a ministry context, in conversation with both theology and social sciences. The capstone of all our doctoral programs is the thesis, a substantive work of action-reflection scholarship based upon rigorous examination of a ministry context and robust engagement with academic disciplines.
