What is a PhD in Theology? This degree program provides students with ministerial training, culturally relevant ministry, and professional and spiritual formation.

Applicants usually meet with the head of the department to determine the relevant instructor suited for their research. The department's head will offer several possibilities, and the student then contacts the relevant faculty members. The format is different than that of the US in that students who achieved their BA and MA degrees in Biblical Studies are trained to write their Ph.D. dissertations. Students should register for a course on ancient language (if not already taken during their MA studies: Greek, Akkadian, Latin) and modern language other than English (German, French, Italian, etc.). The majority of a student’s time in the Phd program is invested in preparing a proposal and the thesis itself. Each Phd student should also take one course per year during his/her studies in addition to participating in the departmental seminars. -
