Now, your application process is more easy!
The application for doctoral study has recently been simplified. Applicants are no longer required to complete the skills assessments as part of the application.
“This will simplify the process both to enroll and begin to advance your knowledge of God’s Word while benefiting your current ministries,” says Dr. Wayne Slusser, seminary dean and professor of New Testament and Greek. Students can now apply for the Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Ministry programs by simply submitting an application and completing an interview with the BBS acceptance committee.
Doctoral Degree Programs
You’ll be prepared for ministry leadership and academic research through deep and practical study. The 32-credit-hour Master of Theology parallels the core of the first half of the Doctor of Philosophy. You will develop a greater proficiency in a selected area of Bible knowledge which can smoothly transition into completing the Doctor of Philosophy.
With 30 credit hours and three concentrations from which to choose, the Doctor of Ministry is built on a strong theological foundation and focuses on the exposition, communication, and ministry of God’s Word in and through various aspects of local church ministry, global ministry, counseling and educational ministries. It is directed toward the professional who wants to develop further and excel in ministry.
Earn your terminal, advanced professional ministry degree, giving you the ability to engage in thorough research and writing. If you aspire to teach in higher education, work internationally as an academic leader or missionary educator or serve as a pastor with a strong teaching ministry, this 60-credit degree will help you reach your goals.
