Mentoring D.Min. program
The ministerial doctorate was created by Claremont's visionary faculty in the 1960s as a means for religious leaders to receive advanced education in the perspectives and practice of ministry.
Today, the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree at Claremont offers religious leaders the opportunity to enhance ministerial skills and sharpen academic aptitude through courses geared toward various interests applicable to contemporary ministry. By engaging deeply with the issues facing particular communities, the D.Min degree provides a formal context to connect the practices of the community to the work of the academy.
Students in the Mentoring D.Min. program work closely with a faculty advisor to craft a personalized course of study that meets your needs for advanced ministerial reflection and practice. This program is open to religious professionals from any tradition who can benefit from the expertise of Claremont’s faculty. It is also well-suited for a minister with a one-year sabbatical, such as those who receive a Clergy Renewal Award from the Lilly Endowment, Inc.
