Board of Regents approves doctoral program proposalWaxahachie, Texas — August 7, 2013 — Southwestern Assemblies of God University's (SAGU) Board of Regents approved SAGU's proposal to raise its classification level to offer doctoral programs, the first being a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) in leadership and communication. Pending approval from the university's accrediting agency (Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), SAGU plans to offer courses in Fall 2014. Enrollment information for the new program will be available in the fall.

The Doctor of Ministry in leadership and communication will provide students the spiritual, academic, leadership, homiletic, and media resources to be effective communicators. The program will prepare church leaders to communicate effectively in a media-saturated society and to enhance their sermon presentations and online ministry presence through media. The addition of the Doctor of Ministry and level change is an important advancement for SAGU.

"Our alumni base and constituency have been asking for a program like this for years. It’s exciting to see SAGU move to the next level with this important and needed degree," said Vice President for Enrollment and Retention Eddie Davis.

The 30-hour graduate program will offer 3 hours in the fall and spring and 6 hours in the summer to create schedules conducive to students who are actively engaged in ministry. The program will combine distance education with strategic campus seminars to connect students with top-tier leaders. Prerequisites for admission are a Master of Divinity and three years of full-time ministry.

Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) is a private, Christian university located 30 minutes south of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex in Waxahachie, Texas. The university was established in 1927 and now offers more than 60 associate, bachelor’s or master’s degrees on campus or online.
