Doctor of Ministry in Public Theology

The Doctor of Ministry in Public Theology program will give you in-depth exposure to the academic and practical elements of theology as applied in the public sphere in service of the common good, including knowledge of liberation theology. Through your dissertation, you’ll have the opportunity to craft your own research project in the area of public and applied theology, using your current ministry context as a base for that work.
