South University

The history and roots of South University can be traced back to 1899. The purpose of the College of Theology itself, is to equip graduates of all faith traditions to seek entry as ministry practitioners through advanced practical theology and ministry studies in a variety of settings, including local churches, parachurch organizations, institutions, the community, and the marketplace. South’s Doctor of Ministry degree is a 96 quarter hour program and is designed to be the first-professional degree to prepare ministry practitioners to seek vocational or bi-vocational ministry. The program helps to develop a student’s understanding of the nature and purpose of ministry, enhance the student’s competencies in ministry skills, and promote the student’s growth in spiritual maturity.
