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. To apply, one completes the same application materials are for other Master’s level programs.
