The Doctor of Ministry degree program requires a total of 50 hours. This is comprised of six courses (30 hours) plus a ministry project (20 hours).

Students holding a doctoral degree in another discipline may pursue a D.Min by doing three courses (15 hours) to include a dissertation. The second doctorate provides the student with additional opportunities to study in a different field.
Second Doctorate Degree is available for the advanced student, an Opportunity for Ministry and Academic Growth.
The tuition is $2,595 for the Doctor of Ministry post-doctoral work. Candidates must also provide a transcript of the previous doctorate.

The dissertation must be between 90 – 100 pages. The dissertation theme must be submitted to the committee for approval. Once the theme is approved the doctoral candidate may begin the program.

The student must select a theme that he or she is passionate about for this degree. The hope of Aspen is that this process will further equip the student in fulfilling his or her ministry calling and service to Jesus Christ.
