Master of Arts in African American Ministry
Ph.D. in African American Ministry
The student may pursue either of the following degrees:
Master of Arts in African American Ministry – $2,295.00
Ph.D. in African American Ministry – $2,595.00
Tuition does not include cost of books or any seminars.
The Masters Degree requires eight courses or 40 hours of study. Eight of the courses/texts on this page may be chosen.
The Ph.D. degree requires six courses and a dissertation for 50 hours of study. Six of the courses/texts may be chosen from this page.
The dissertation should be from 60 to 120 pages and contain a minimum of twenty references in the Bibliography. This is the minimum.
We expect a student to only do one degree in African American Ministry. We would not encourage a student to do a Masters in African American Ministry and a Ph.D.
If you have a Th.D. or a Ph.D. you may do a second doctorate, dissertation only. Cost is $2,595.00.
If you have a Doctor of Ministry degree you must do at least four courses and the dissertation if your goal is the Ph.D. in African American Ministry. Please select four of the recommended textbooks on this page if you have a DMIN degree and wish to go for the Ph.D.
Possibly, a student would do Biblical studies, Theology, Evangelism, or even a general ministry degree if a combination program is desired. Most of the students who enter this program will be at the Masters or Doctoral level.
