Saint Leo University's New Doctor of Theology Program

This could be of interest to Universal Life Church ministers, although keep in mind that this is a serious degree program. You'll need an earned accredited Master's degree in a relevant field (divinity, philosophy, religious studies, etc) among other things to get in, and it's no cake walk once you get started. A full description from Spotify is below.

In this episode of the Saint Leo 360 podcast, we preview the new Doctor of Theology degree program that Saint Leo University is launching this year. We caught up with Dr. Stephen Okey, associate professor of theology, religion, and philosophy and director of this new doctoral program, to further discuss this new and exciting terminal degree. During the conversation, Dr. Okey spoke about:

  • His background in terms of education and career
