Received promotion as a result of his GMU Doctor of Ministry degree... CSU Western CT State University, in Danbury, CT has accepted my DMin Degree, granted by Global Ministries University. This is a great benefit to me in that the degree raised my status level at WCSU (where I, also, previously taught,) and as a result, my salary level. The University did this without question. I recommend the program to all, especially those who have been, or who are currently, in ministry. -Dr. Leo McIllrath, Sandy Hook, CT
Drawn to GMU because of its policy of awarding prior learning and life experience…
I chose to enroll in the Master of Theology program because of its liberal, ecumenical and accessible approach. This program honors my education in the "university of life," which was my only option for studying theology while living in a soviet-occupied country, where education was dictated and controlled by the soviets -- making it hard to get a good education without breaking the law. -Rev. Zilvinas Jaksta St. Paul, MN
Appreciated flexible schedule… I believe that independent study is a wonderful solution for working adults.My coursework has been a long road for an old lady (now 60) and very rewarding. I appreciate GMU’s flexible schedule, as I have had to cope with some personal difficulties, and look forward to more fascinating classes in the future. -Rev. Patti McClellan
