Northwind Seminary's Doctoral Degree Completion program is designed for working adults engaged in Ministry.


At Northwind Seminary, our faith-based degree completion programs are designed to fit your
lifestyle, family, work, and Ministry.  There are no semesters at NTS. Start your course anywhere, anytime, on any device.


Our students take one course at a time and study at their own pace completing courses in as little as 30 days and a maximum of 120 days.


NTS Doctor in Specialized Ministry Degree Completion students can bring up to 12 credits of previous coursework and ministry, business, & military experience into the Doctor in Specialized Ministry Degree. These credits are evaluated by Northwind Academic. Approved coursework credits and awarded experiential credits are transferred to Northwind Seminary. 


Students with less than 12 transferrable credits of coursework or experience credit take courses from Northwind Institute or Northwind Seminary.


The Faculty Mentor facilitates scheduled video conversations and participates in the portfolio preparation and examination.


Students journey through a series of research milestones to generate the final Portfolio Project that addresses a Need or Opportunity in their ministry context.


Students set their own schedule and proceed at their own pace. Each 3-credit course can be completed within 30 to 90 days. Each 6-credit course can be completed in 60-120 days.
