PhD Programs in Humanities Studies Theology Divinity

Divinity is an academic discipline structured to ready candidates for priestly or pastoral ministry. With each sect, the program of study may differ. By the end of studies, the newly ordained minister should be able to preach, minister to the needy, interpret scripture and doctrine, and lead worship services.

The USA remains the world’s most popular destination for international students. Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.

Requirements for the PhD program often involve the student having already obtained a Master’s degree. Additionally, a thesis or dissertation primarily consisting of original academic research must be submitted. In some countries, this work may even need to be defended in front of a panel.
