Academic Programs

Diploma in Theology

The 24 credit hour Diploma in Theology program allows for the greatest amount of flexibility in the design of a program of theological study that will meet the student’s overall goals for study and academic interests.  Its requirements include taking one 3 credit hour course in each of the following subject areas: Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, and Theology. Additional coursework can be chosen from among the courses offered in the Master’s level curriculum.  

The program can be pursued on either a full-time or part-time basis, and applicants may apply for admission in either the fall or spring semesters of a given academic year.  Those who choose full-time study can complete the program in one year.  The application procedure is the same as for the master’s degree programs.
