New Ph.D. in Historical Theology at Southeastern Seminary

Written by , Posted in History, Theology

For many months, I have been working with a team of faculty members to develop a new Ph.D. in Historical Theology at Southeastern Seminary. The program begins fall 2014. You can apply now.

Students will have the opportunity to take seminars on topics such as Patristic Theology, Reformation Theology, Modern Theology, Baptist Theology, History and Theology of Spiritual Awakenings and Theology of the Radical Reformers, among other offerings. As of right now, incoming students have the opportunity to work with myself, Stephen Eccher (Reformation) and Steve McKinion (Patristics). We hope to announce some additional professors with whom you can work over the next year.

One of the reasons I am excited about this program is that it is offered in a modified residency format for students who are unable to relocate to Wake Forest. Let me say that again: you can earn a fully accredited Ph.D. in Historical Theology without relocating. SEBTS has also launched modified residency Ph.D. programs in Systematic Theology, Apologetics, Philosophy of Religion, Theology and Worship and Christian Leadership; these programs also begin fall 2014.

You should check out the Doctor of Philosophy website at SEBTS to learn more about these programs. Feel free to contact me if you have questions specifically related to Historical Theology.
