DC 815 - Canon Law


The purpose of the Doctoral Level Course Canon Law is to teach students to follow the rules and stay out of trouble. The aim is always to discern the spirit of the law and canon law theory, of course, rather than the letter of it. This is a comprehensive Canon Law study that covers diverse perspectives – Orthodox, Non-Chalcedonian, Roman Catholic, and numerous flavors of Protestant. The student will be required to provide an historical overview and contemporary outline and analysis of Church Rules or Canon Law for their denomination in their own words as a final project.

Degree & Track

St. Michael Academy is licensed in the state of Florida to offer ecclesiastical Doctor of Divinity degrees. To take this course the student must be enrolled in the Doctor of Divinity program either on a full time, part time, or trial basis. To take the course on trial basis you may apply for the doctoral program after completing this course and apply this course toward the completion of your degree at that time. The Divinity program requires mastery of the subject as preparation for pastoral ministry. This course forms part of the "Fast Track" Doctor of Divinity program. The focus of the fast track is on rapid and effective preparation for the ministry of restoration, specifically, rather than on scholastic achievement. Therefore, some academic pre-requisites may be waived so long as an applicant can demonstrate adequate life experience. Even if you do not think you have sufficient academic background or transcripts, you may be considered for a doctoral degree and may be able to achieve it very rapidly. You are encouraged to apply.
