Since doctoral seminars afford contact with professors and interaction with peers, presence on campus is an important part of the D.Min. experience. Other options exist, however. One or two courses may be taken at the 6000 or 7000-level, either on campus or through our Distance Education Center. Subject to approval, one or two doctoral level courses also may be transferred into the program from another seminary or university. Of the required twenty-four semester course hours, twelve must be resident hours.
