!! The application deadline for the new 2019 Cohort is February 11, 2019. All application forms should be received at IGSL by February 11, 2019.
This joint program has one set of application forms. However, each of the degree programs has somewhat different entrance requirements.
- ThM program– requires an MDiv degree; or an MA degree (or equivalent) with a minimum of graduate level course work in Bible and Theology (12 credits), education/practical ministry/leadership courses (12 credits) and research methods (6 credits).
- DMin program – requires an MDiv degree or equivalent.
- PhD program – requires either the MDiv degree or a sufficiently strong MA (see the ThM requirement). Participants fully admitted to the joint program who complete the first and second year courses and practicum work at a high level, may apply to the PhD program after the third year block courses. Consideration will be given to the participant’s GPA (looking for A- ), previous degree work, evidence of ministry skills, timely completion of course work, ministry gifting/competencies, and ministry goals.
