Explore scholarship opportunities to help fund your studies
A Doctorate of Philosophy is the highest level of degree that a student can achieve, demonstrating academic excellence through independent, creative thought and the ability to interact with modern scholarship. To earn a PhD, students must write an 80,000-word thesis on a topic defined by their research proposal under a relevant faculty member's guidance. PhD students research their own topics, working closely with their supervisors to write their theses. Staff at Union College have a long history of supervising PhDs successfully in a wide range of theological areas.
