Columbia Accepts Sixteen Students for New Doctor of Educational Ministry Program

2006-09-15

Decatur, GA—Sixteen students have been admitted to the new Doctor of Educational Ministry (D.Ed.Min.) program at Columbia Theological Seminary. They will participate in the program’s introductory seminar September 25-October 6. This first cohort includes students from as far away as Idaho and New Mexico. The D.Ed.Min. is a part-time degree program for those actively employed in an official position of educational ministry. All candidates are required to hold at least a first professional degree in religious education and have at least three years experience in educational ministry. Requiring completion of 36 hours, the academic program includes two-week residential courses on the Columbia campus, with a practicum and final research project done in the student’s place of ministry. Completion of the degree is expected to take four years--Columbia is the only PC(USA) seminary offering a terminal practical degree for Christian educators. The program accepts students every other year. A second cohort will be admitted for studies to begin in 2008. For more information about the Doctor of Educational Ministry program, contact Charles Raynal at 404-687-4533, or e-mail advancedstudies@ctsnet.edu. Columbia Theological Seminary, located in Decatur, Georgia, was established in 1828 and is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
