Description of Program
The Th.D. Program at La Salle University seeks to prepare highly talented individuals to “hand on” the Christian faith in a wide spectrum of venues. Graduates, grounded in solid scholarship, will have the ability to convey the insights of theological knowledge through classroom teaching, programmatic design, ministerial supervision, and the development of theological resources for various audiences.
The structure of the program includes three intensive summer residencies, online learning, and independent study. Students create and maintain a portfolio that includes reviews of critical texts, annotated bibliographies, and major research papers. At the conclusion of the course work, students review the portfolio to prepare questions for the comprehensive examination and to develop a proposal for the dissertation.
