M.Div. or Equivalent
We do require that you hold a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree or its educational equivalent. A Bachelor of Theology (B.Theol.) plus a Master of Theology (M.Th.) from UD will satisfy this entry requirement. If you hold another theological master’s (e.g., M.T.S.T., or M.A.Theol.), please contact us. We would love to review your work and determine your best path toward equivalency and the D.Min.
Because the D.Min.’s emphasis is on the practice of ministry, you will need to be involved in ministry, and have at least 3 years of ministry experience following the completion of your first theological master’s degree. Our community of learners includes leaders in a variety of ministry contexts such as church planting, chaplaincy, missions, education, congregational ministry, non-profit leadership, and more.
