Upon completion of Ubiquity’s Doctor of Ministry program, you will be awarded the title “Doctor of Ministry.” This is one of the highest honors society bestows and indicates respect and acknowledgement for an expertise that the larger community can count on for integrity and professional competence.

Combined MA-DMin

Our combined MA-DMin (Doctor of Ministry) program is open to a spectrum of disciplines and interests. It aims to address a range of problems in virtually every area of human and ecological concern. This program is dedicated to helping you envision and co-create a new global civilization in which the human species can become responsible and respectful stewards of our larger planetary ecosystem.

At every level in the masters-doctoral process you are supported by mentors and coaches. You will be required to take certain core courses and will have the freedom to design the rest of your program in consultation with your mentors and the Dean of Graduate Studies.

Students can select courses from either inside Ubiquity or outside Ubiquity. This means that if there is a course you need to take that is offered through another institution, you are free to do so. Ubiquity’s in-person courses are also available for masters-doctoral credit.

Admissions Process: Complete an initial interview with our Dean of Graduate Studies, then submit all materials prior to registering for courses.

All doctoral students must submit:

  • Transcript of completed Master’s Degree that clearly displays title of your major, date of graduation, list of courses taken and grades received
  • Essay indicating your educational goals and the area of research you want to explore
  • Your most recent resume/CV

Requirements:

This combined MA/DMin Degree is composed of 80 credits

  • Core and elective courses (56 Credits)
  • Dissertation (24 Credits)

Doctoral students must complete three core courses offered by Ubiquity University as well as write a doctoral dissertation. The remaining courses can be taken from Ubiquity or elsewhere as specific courses related to the chosen field of study.

  • Great Books with Dr. Jim Garrison and Dr. Gyorgyi Szabo (3 credits online)
