Academics

UDTS offers three graduate theological degree programs: the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.), the Master of Arts in Mission and Discipleship (MAMD), and the Master of Divinity (M.Div.).  The D.Min. is designed for pastors who are currently engaged in ordained ministry. The MAMD is intended for those who seek theological and spiritual enrichment but desire to serve in non-ordained vocations. The MDiv is the first professional degree for those seeking ordination to the ministry of Word and Sacrament.

The majority of our students are enrolled in the M.Div. program, either as residential or distance students. 

Dubuque Seminary also provides two special programs for non-traditional students without an undergraduate degree.  The 3/3 program enables qualified students to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Divinity degree in six years.  The 3/2 program provides for completion of both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in Mission and Discipleship in five years.
