With world-renowned teachers and alumni, CTS is the global leader in transformational religious studies. We offer several Masters and Doctoral degrees, including Masters in Divinity, Sacred Theology and Religious Leadership.

Doctor of Philosophy

The Doctor of Philosophy degree is a program with specific interdisciplinary concentrations at the most advanced level of study. It’s designed to prepare religious leaders to work at the highest levels in a variety of teaching, counseling, research, ministry and administrative positions. CTS offers two distinct concentrations within the Ph.D. program: Bible, Culture and Hermeneutics (Jewish and Christian Scriptures) and Theology Ethics and the Human Sciences. Both programs emphasize interdisciplinary methods; the encounter between texts and contexts; and critical reflection.
