PhD in Bible and Theology Program Begins at Calvary University
Groundbreaking, Dual-Discipline PhD Program Officially Started This Week with a Greek Intensive
The first class in the new PhD in Bible and Theology program at Calvary University met on January 15, 2019 (Tuesday night). Dr. Neil Nelson taught Greek Intensive I to five students.
The PhD in Bible and Theology program is designed for those who want to learn and use the biblical languages (Hebrew and Greek) to do biblical exegesis and systematic theology. Students who have taken the biblical languages (Hebrew and Greek) in seminary are required to take proficiency exams to bypass taking the biblical language courses.
Students who have taken the Master of Arts in Bible and Theology program (1-2 year program) can become a PhD student at Calvary University. Their first PhD class is Greek Intensive I which introduces the students to elementary grammar and basic vocabulary of Koine Greek and involves learning how to read the Greek New Testament.
The PhD in Bible and Theology program is affordable. Resident PhD students pay $397 per credit hour. Online PhD students pay $437 a credit hour. PhD students who are in full-time ministry get the $250 a credit hour tuition rate.
The PhD in Bible and Theology program is focused. Students take one class at a time. The Biblical language classes meet twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday nights) for four hours a week for eight weeks (one cycle).
