D.MIN. PROGRAMS
General Description:
The Doctor of Ministry degree program (DMin) provides an opportunity for persons engaged in active ministry to combine advanced study in the classical disciplines of theological inquiry with active reflection on the experience of ministry. The program can be done residentially, as a commuter, or from a distance. While most students begin the program in January, under special circumstance students maybe petition to begin in September. The starting point of the DMin program is the Doctor of Ministry Colloquium, Ministerial Perspectives on the Doctor of Ministry, beginning in January of each year and continuing with Approaches to Anti-Racist Ministry and Producing the Thesis Project, a writing course, during the June term. The DMin Colloquium is designed to help students clarify their topic of study. Students are required to participate in the two-week session in January and the two-week session in June in the year they are admitted to the program, but DMin student may take classes during all terms (fall, January, spring and June.)

The program is based on our conviction that persons who are engaged in the practice of ministry are required to be working theologians. They are called upon to engage in the task of reflecting critically upon the questions and issues posed by their ministry. Therefore, the program provides a setting in which ministers, lay and ordained, may improve their practice of ministry through focused theological reflection. It is expected that persons enrolled in the program will broaden the content of their theological knowledge, improve their ability to analyze problems and issues that emerge from their ministerial settings, and develop theological understanding that both reflects and informs their ministries.

The DMin program is specifically designed for persons who are able to identify their particular interests and needs for intellectual and professional development. The program may be used to enhance effectiveness in ministry or to prepare for a new ministerial direction or focus. Course offerings allow for maximum flexibility and the participation of individuals pursuing full-time ministry. In all cases, admission into the DMin program will depend on the availability of academic resources for an applicant's intended program and on how that program relates to the established areas of emphasis within the EDS curriculum.
Academic Prerequisites:
A master of divinity degree or its equivalent, and three years of lay or ordained ministry experience are required for admission into the program. The program begins in January of each year, though students can request a fall start under special circumstances.
