About Doctor of Ministry (DMin) Program
For church and non-profit leaders ready to take their ministry to a whole new level of community and global engagement
The DMin is BGU's signature degree, which draws students into a learning environment that includes increased global and cultural diversity of the student body, faculty, and course locations. Anchored by teaching from a historically-rooted, whole- Bible narrative theology, students receive direct exposure to the new realities of a global world in massive economic, social, environmental, and spiritual transformation. The first one-fifth of this program consists of two cohort-based immersion courses, which are held in two or more global cities on two continents. This is followed by a coaching and research course that helps each student identify and clarify their dissertation topic, and then design a customized elective track to build their research and experience for their dissertation. Students can select dissertation topics that explore new interests; have immediate practical benefit to their current work; or build toward a publishable work.
All four BGU programs engage the Unique Niche Areas of expertise in the BGU network of students, alumni, and faculty.
