Doctoral Studies

Equipping and Training Leaders

Doctoral Studies programs at Midwestern Seminary are designed to equip and train leaders for the Church. Using an American and European blend of structured and independent research, residency requirements are achieved through week-long seminars that may be augmented by online and supervised instruction. The doctoral program is designed for students seeking a high level of professional and academic competence.

With monthly payment options and applications accepted year round, your training can begin with ease. Our programs are designed around specialized seminars, meaning that students have no need to interrupt their personal and ministerial lives to move to Kansas City. Most seminars require just one week (Monday-Friday) on campus, along with extensive work outside the classroom.
