Doctor of Pastoral Music (D.P.M.)
Church musicians serve congregations faithfully throughout the United States and beyond. While continuing education events are numerous, few programs exist for church musicians that allow them to retune their vocation in the context of the changing demands of the music ministry. The Doctor of Pastoral Music (D.P.M.) is designed for experienced church musicians who have achieved a Master of Sacred Music degree or its equivalent and who are devoted to increasing their effectiveness in and broadening their vision of the pastoral dimensions of music ministry into the larger community. Classes are held in an intensive one-week format that allows students to maintain their positions in congregations or other church-related institutions.
