Doctor of Education (Spiritual Formation and Discipleship)


AGST Alliance's Doctor of Education program is designed to produce graduates who are able to integrate sound educational, social science and spiritual formation theory and their professional practice, by means of original applied research that demonstrates advanced theological reflection and which is designed to enhance informed and improved practice in their organisations.

If they stay in their professional role, graduates are likely to be invited to teach applied courses in theological education institutions. They are also likely to be invited to take up (or continue in) senior leadership positions in these institutions.

As our EdD program is focused on Christian education/spiritual formation, we work hard to integrate theological and educational elements into all the components of the program (rather than having separate theology and education modules), as an avenue for 'serving God's people in Asia'.

Our EdD program is non-residential, modular and (for most candidates) part-time.

  • No need for major ministry and family upheavals for several years.
  • Studies are earthed in candidates' current social, church and vocational settings.
  • Some flexibility is possible.
