The DMin degree is one of the professional doctorates. Like an MD (Doctor of Medicine), a JD (Doctor of Jurisprudence), EdD (Doctor of Education), or DBA (Doctor of Business), a DMin is specific to the pastoral and therapeutic communities. It arose originally for ministers seeking a doctoral degree but who were less interested in the pure research required for a PhD than in applied research in areas of healing, therapy, spiritual growth and counseling where the dissertation was in an area they were seeking to apply in their professional work. Upon completion of Ubiquity’s Doctor of Ministry program, you will be awarded the title “Doctor of Ministry.” This is one of the highest honors society bestows and indicates respect and acknowledgement for an expertise that the larger community can count on for integrity and professional competence.
