Students also select a minor exam from either Biblical Studies, Historical Theology/History of Christianity, or Systematic Theology and a dissertation area exam.
Dissertation: In dissertation research, students are encouraged to push the current boundaries of topics and methods in their chosen fields. Our faculty members embrace research into practices and artifacts, as well as the customary literary sources, in order to explore theological themes and diverse constructions of social identity.
