Doctorate

Doctorate of Theology
The Doctor of Theology in Pastoral Theology is a 30 semester hour program.  The program focuses upon the teaching of important doctrines through the study of key Bible books from both the Old and New Testaments.  The program is a great option for those who are seeking to teach in the local church and desire to enhance their knowledge of the Bible.

The Doctor of Theology in Pastoral Theology does not require language work or a dissertation.  All of the coursework is lecture-based, with a variety of professors presenting practical exposition courses for the Christian teacher.  Students will be challenged to think more deeply about the Word of God than ever before.  Most courses will test the student’s grasp of the course material through traditional final exams.  Upon completion of the course, students should have a large collection of practical expository notes that they can easily transform into lessons for the church classroom.
