Ph.D. in Practical Theology
Our innovative cohort model embodies community as a constitutive element of the method of Practical Theology. Students come from a variety of backgrounds and experience with a common desire: to pursue an academically rigorous course of study leading to a terminal degree that will enable them to be leaders both within and beyond the academy.

Master of Divinity
This program is ecumenical at its roots having resulted from our affiliation with the Florida Center for Theological Studies in 2010. Following the guidelines of the Association of Theological Schools its aim is to educate leaders in theology and ministry for pastoral service. Students preparing for ordination in many Protestant communities study with others who are preparing for ministries such as chaplaincy and education. Distance learning is combined with residency classes to provide access for those beyond the Miami area. Advisement by the Ecumenical Institute insures academic and formational proficiency.
