The new Doctor of Ministry Handbook is online!

The new Doctor of Ministry Handbook is online! Come to rekindle your imagination, engage complex issues, connect with community, and rediscover the joy of learning theology and ministry. If you have an MDiv (or equivalent) and three years of ministry experience, consider starting your DMin at Andover Newton this summer!

We are accepting applications for the new summer cohort up until May 1st. Our priority deadline is April 20, and final deadline is Aug. 1 for entering the traditional Fall 2012 cohort.

Clergy and lay leaders often look for ways to deepen their creative reflection and re-engage and revitalize their faith practices and ministries.
The DMin Program at Andover Newton offers many benefits to the mid-career religious leader, some now for the first time:

  • A well-thought out academic program that includes doctoral seminars, electives, and independent scholarship on theology, religion, and ministry.
  • An outstanding faculty that works closely with DMin advisees.
  • A flexible curriculum with a block schedule (classes that meet only once per week) for regional students and an intensive schedule (two Junes, other courses online and in January) for those who cannot come to campus regularly.
  • Creative freedom to design a specialization according to one’s passions and Andover Newton’s resources.
  • A cohort model that blends deep relationship-building with flexibility, where students pursue seminars in-sequence but can expand the sequence where needed.
