Doctor of Ministry

St. Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of JesusFoundations

In keeping with Fordham University's Jesuit mission, the program gives special, though not exclusive, attention to the Christian and Catholic religious tradition. A major concern of the program is to explore the social role that religious ministry can play in dealing with cultural and theological issues, such as: Ecology, Feminism, Multiculturalism, Globalization, Enculturation, Peace and Justice, and Spirituality.

The DMin program is designed to prepare reflective and competent professionals for positions of leadership in religious ministry. The program strives to discover and nurture sound scholarship, meaningful research and the interdependence of theory and practice.
