The Doctor of Theology (Th.D.) program provides students with academically rigorous training, comparable to the demands of the Ph.D., focused on the ministries and practices of Christian communities. The program centers upon areas of study such as worship, preaching, evangelism, and the arts. At the same time, the Th.D. program seeks to place such practices into creative interdisciplinary conversation with the established academic discourses of biblical studies, historical studies, and theology and ethics. The interdisciplinary scope of the program extends, as well, to other areas of the university and addresses fresh areas of research such as the intersection of divinity and health care, or peacemaking and reconciliation
