Message from the Program Director
Barry University's Doctor of Ministry program is designed to help experienced ministers develop and apply new academic and pastoral skills within their own ecclesial settings.
Our students are ordained and lay ecclesial ministers from Roman Catholic, Eastern and Greek Orthodox, and Protestant denominations. Students come from a variety of ethnic, socio-economic, geographic, and ministerial backgrounds, promoting quality classroom exchange and enhanced learning.
We are committed to doing all we can to help you finance your education. Barry University participates in federal and state financial aid programs. The Department of Theology and Philosophy offers a discount to graduate students engaged in full-time ministry. Graduate assistantships are sometimes available within the Department.
We invite you to join this community of scholars committed to study, exploration, and service!
