Course content

This doctoral programme contains both a taught element and a 50,000 word dissertation, with a particular focus on the practice of Christian ministry. The taught element may be abbreviated in the case of those who already hold a degree at M level. The DMin falls into that family of professional doctorates which are intended to enhance the knowledge and skills of practitioners up to the highest level. The research topic should be connected in some way with practical experience of ministry. The thesis should make a substantial contribution to the understanding and practice of ministry.
