Doctor of Ministry
The Doctor of Ministry is offered through a cooperative agreement with San Francisco Theological Seminary.
While there is a depth of mystery and humility in faith, San Francisco Theological Seminary's Doctor of Ministry program at Marylhurst University is designed to give students’ faith a practical application, allowing it to achieve its full meaning as a force for positive change.
Students from all major traditions – Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism or Islam – will learn to apply theology to a concrete pastoral discipline.
Doctor of Ministry graduates leave with greater career potential and a deeper appreciation for the many connections among faith, community and personal goals.
In this program, students:
• Gain a greater understanding of sacred literature;
• Learn about modern pastoral issues;
• Develop skills for a career in educational leadership; and
• Expand theological knowledge.
The convergence of clergy and lay pastors from many faiths provides students with opportunities for networking and support. While working on the Doctor of Ministry degree, students strike up relationships with colleagues that often lead to new career paths, new insights into challenging spiritual, political and ethical issues, and friendships that last for decades.
