As mentioned earlier, I'd use an advanced application to the IP material, such as this which I'm working through

.. and additional set stuff. With electives as well so people can personalize their study.

Then make the D. Div. a research and thesis project.

And I personally and wholeheartedly believe we should reincorporate the M.Div and the D.Div into course-level or measurable activities, as well. Especially the D.Div, which I mentioned earlier is typically only an honorary title and not one that showcases work on a topic.


i agree, and it's something i'm considering/working on...the trick is getting everything sorted and getting enough on board for it....i'm still in the "getting everything sorted" phase...as has been mentioned a few times, things are a bit of a mess, at no one's fault as the system was kind of just thrown together, then modified and adjusted over the years....a complete overhaul will take considerable time and work

IMO, degrees must represent experience and achievements, not books read or books written.

Zen was passed pretty much binary, AFAIK. Either you are or you are not. And all based on simple passage from one hands to the other.

Seems to me that those with Master- and Doctorate-type titles should be groundbreakers in some way. Like, really have done something significant as far as developing and adding to Jediism with some major kind of effort. It should be appropriately time and life consuming. Maybe the reward for earning a Doctorate-type of deal could eventually be some kind of a (humble) monetary grant to support their research.

Sorry, I'll show myself out.
