Honorary Degrees

ATU now offers several paths to the honorary degree:

  • Doctor, Honoris Causa (Dr.Hon.) may be awarded for community achievements and a commitment to reconciling science and religion.
  • Doctor of Divinity (D.D.) may be awarded for achievements in ministry and community service.
  • Legum Doctor in Cannon Law (LL.D.) may be awarded for achievements in policy making favoring religion or legislature, judicial,  or government success in advocating religion and community service. (While only an honorary title in the US, its origins started with the University of  Cambridge where the double “L” was used to indicate both Civil and Cannon Law.)
