For students who have particular learning interests not addressed by one of the tracks, or whose ministry contexts suggest other areas of attention for a D.Min. program, a generalist program is available. In consultation with the D.Min. Director, a student can customize a program to fit his or her desired research goals and ministerial practices. Drawing from the courses offered, a student could pursue any number of directions for inquiry. As in our other tracks, an appropriate mentor will be assigned to each student.
Students who choose this track, in consultation with the D.Min. Director, will select a mentor who has experience in areas of the student's expressed interest.
