Welcome to the home page for the research doctoral programs. We are a close-knit community of scholars committed to guiding and shaping the next generation of religious teachers and leaders. Our faculty and students are active members of various professional societies, engaging in research aimed at producing healthy churches.
All majors in the PhD program are available at a distance through synchronous interactive video as well as in the traditional classroom. Students who are unable to take advantage of the campus scholarly environment can participate fully in seminars and colloquia by joining the class sessions through live Internet connections.
Seminars meet weekly, every two weeks, or 3 or 4 times during the semester. See PhD course schedules for specific dates and times.
You also may want to consider visiting the campus. Register on the Campus Visit page for an individual tour of the campus and to meet with professors in your area of interest.
We look forward to hearing from you.
