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.
