Prerequisite: Masters Degree or Equivalent
Requirements: Completion of Doctoral Dissertation & Portfolio evaluation.
Format: Dissertation + Portfolio

The Doctor of Theology (Th.D.) program of study is designed to provide students with a deep and advanced understanding of the Christian faith and theology. The program is intended to prepare students to be scholars, leaders, and teachers in the field of theology, with a particular focus on research and academic pursuits.

Through the program, students will have the opportunity to specialize in a particular area of theology, such as biblical studies, historical theology, systematic theology, or practical theology. They will be expected to conduct extensive research in their area of specialization and produce a substantial thesis or dissertation that contributes to the field of theology.

Exagora Theological Seminary follows the British educational model in its Doctorate-by-Dissertation program. Participants pursuing the Th.D. degree shall complete a ten-phase process equivalent to typical work beyond the Master’s degree in a traditional doctoral program.

No transfer credit shall be applied toward this degree, neither shall there be any credit for “work experience” or “life experience.” This is an earned degree and the development of a doctoral dissertation is a major and significant academic effort.
