Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Doctor of Theology (Th.D.)

The Ph.D. and Th.D. are offered by the Graduate Theological Union (GTU).

These advanced academic degrees prepare students for professional careers in teaching, writing, and scholarship, as well as for leadership opportunities with religious organizations, social service agencies, foundations, museums, libraries, publishing, and in educational institutions.

The doctoral program includes areas of study that utilize the depth of faculty expertise made possible by the union of the nine member schools of the GTU, and its affiliated centers and institutes. The academic disciplines represented by a diverse range of faculty, combined with multi-denominational and interfaith cooperation, provide a rich environment for developing one’s academic voice. Several CDSP faculty are among the core faculty of the GTU.

Candidates for the Ph.D. and Th.D. degrees may affiliate with CDSP, and walk in the CDSP as well as the GTU commencements.

A full description of these programs is available from the GTU.
