Be the Spark for Transformational Change

The Doctor of Ministry degree (DMin) is a professional doctoral degree meant to enrich religious leaders in traditional and non-traditional settings, to deepen their understanding of and commitment to ministry, and to refine its practice. The focus of the Boston University DMin is Transformational Leadership, and anyone can become a transformational leader. You first need the desire to build new skills and explore new ideas, to understand your community and know its strengths and needs, and a willingness to see possibilities for transformative change.

The DMin program is a three-year, low-residency degree program that combines online learning with intensive on-campus classes, and allows you to craft the program that you will need for your ministerial practice.
