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.
