Doctor of Philosophy in Biblical Studies (PhD)
The PhD in Biblical Studies prepares persons for teaching in colleges and theological institutions, for scholarship, and for denominational leadership. Students develop a major in Old Testament or New Testament and a minor in the other testament or another area of the theological curriculum. Through critical historical study of the Bible and contemporary hermeneutical theory and method, students gain a wide-ranging exposure to the discipline and its current diversity.
My goal is to create an atmosphere where students are encouraged to voice their opinions and ask questions. When we ask new questions of the text, the Bible can address us where we are and bring God's word for our context. -Dr. Osvaldo Vena
