Our Ph.D. Degree is the most rigorous degree we offer, requiring completion of 48-semester credits and a formal defense of the dissertation in an Oral Examination at the conclusion of the dissertation process.

The Ph.D. degree is generally considered a research degree and is typically sought by those who aspire to reach the highest level of scholarly research in a particular area of interest. It requires an extensive literature review and the dissertation must be an original contribution to the field of inquiry. At the Wisdom School of Graduate Studies, we also emphasize the need for both head and heart in equal measure in all of our degrees, including the Ph.D. This is an important point because the head-heart continuum is a central aspect of our approach to learning and is incorporated in all of our programs. All of our Intensives, like all of our degree programs, challenge the student to balance head, heart, body, and soul. The Ph.D. is not an exception to this, but its chief exemplification.... [-]

Ph.D. in Inter-religious Studies

The Doctor of Philosophy in Inter-religious Studies is an advanced research-based, highly individualized course of study in a specialized area of religions beyond Master of Arts (or Master of Divinity) in Intercultural Studies (including Missions Studies and World Christianity).

The focus of the programme is to prepare candidates mostly in the African setting for teaching, leadership, and administration in public and private Christian organizations pertaining to critical issues of religions.

This is in view of the growing tension internationally between religious communities in Africa and even beyond, such as Christian-Muslim conflicts around the world. (The programme gives a priority to those applicants who hold an MTh degree in Intercultural Studies with emphasis on any religion (such as Islam), but it also allows even candidates with a Master of Art or Master of Divinity degree in Intercultural Studies or World Christianity to apply for this doctoral programme.)...

Phd In Theology

L’Université Catholique Du Congo
Campus September 2018 Congo, DR Kinshasa

At the postgraduate level, students may earn the degrees of a Graduate of Advanced Studies in Theology, Doctor of Theology and Associate Professor of Higher Education in Theology. [+]

In 1996, the Standing Committee of the Bishops of the Congo approved a new organization of studies at the Faculty of Theology, which came into force in October of the same year. The reform began with a review of the program of the Department of Theology and Humanities, whose initial twofold objective was the theological formation of religious and lay students who were not destined for the priestly life and the inculturation of the The gospel through the integration, in theological formation, of human sciences attentive to the milieu and cultural traditions.

Without abandoning this double concern, the Standing Committee of Bishops reaffirms that the Church needs the lay people trained in theology, and stresses that the formation of the latter must be the same as for the priests (except, of course, the Matters connected with the priestly ministry). There will be no special program either for the laity or for the priests. For all, he will be the same at all levels: Graduate, License, Diploma of Approfondies (DEA), Doctorate.... [-]
