MILLIGAN, Tenn. (Feb. 27, 2023) — Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan now offers a hybrid Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree and a newly revised Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program, making both more convenient and accessible.
“Emmanuel has a rich tradition of providing a quality education and shaping men and women into servant-leaders for today’s churches,” said Dr. Rich Aubrey, vice president for academic affairs and dean. “As we follow the trends in theological education, Emmanuel’s programs continue to be created and redesigned to make them more accessible, affordable and effective.”
Through a combination of online courses and four intensive, on-campus classes, Emmanuel’s hybrid Master of Divinity in Christian Ministry is designed for students who cannot be on campus full-time. The M.Div. now requires 79 credit hours and can be completed over the course of four years.
“For students who are unable to relocate to campus, we can now bring our esteemed programs to you,” said Aaron Woods, director of seminary admissions. “Our hybrid M.Div. degree is built on the strong success of our online Master of Arts in Christian Ministry program and allows students to stay rooted in their local church communities as they expand their knowledge and are formed into servant-leaders.”
Emmanuel offers generous scholarships for the hybrid M.Div. program, including honors scholarships and the Alexander Campbell Scholarship. The Alexander Campbell Scholarship awards outstanding prospective students up to $28,350 towards their degree. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is Wednesday, March 1.
Students also have the option to transition between the hybrid M.Div. degree and Emmanuel’s traditional, residential M.Div. degree if needed to complete their degreerequirements.
Emmanuel’s Doctor of Ministry program allows ministers to integrate their practical experience in ministry with doctoral-level course work. Emmanuel’s D.Min. has been revised to now offer residential core courses more efficiently, with mentoring, cohort reinforcement and spiritual formation provided online.
The D.Min. can be completed in four years and requires 36-credit hours. Students can now enter the program at any stage in the three-year course rotation, with the fourth year designated for their final project. Residential courses will be offered during the summer in back-to-back weeks to reduce travel expenses.
