Doctor of Philosophy


The Doctor of Philosophy is the perfect award for students whose academic background is in fields other than traditionally related to theology. Providing the opportunity to pursue research in your primary field and integrate this with research in the areas of Biblical, Systematic and Practical theology, this award will equip you in a broad range of fields of study related to the humanities and social sciences and provide a qualification recognised by theological and Bible colleges as well as universities.
