Most of the Doctoral degrees require the completion of 40 credits beyond the Master'sdegree. $75- $95 per credit
The following degrees require 60 credits beyond the Master's degree, including a mandatory doctoral dissertation: Doctor of Theology and Doctor of Christian Philosophy. These credits may come from a combination of: 1) courses taken; 2) an original thesis or ministry project; and 3) a practicum or internship experience. The student is expected to work together with the Dean in designing a program that will meet his desire for growth in the area(s) in which God has placed a passion in his heart.
