Pacific School of Religion offers an opportunity for creative, focused, and advanced professional studies in its cluster Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degree. Unlike the PhD or ThD, the DMin is not a degree in a specialized academic discipline, but rather is a professional degree in ministry that brings together theory and praxis rooted in the academy and the community of faith.
