- Are you ready to take your Biblical Knowledge and Leadership to the Highest Level?
- Are you prepared to dive deep into God’s heart and explore His word as you have never done before?
- Is it time to speak with authority and power?
Take that final step to the top of the platform with the Warnborough College PhD in Practical Theology, and “finally, be strong in the Lord and the power of His might” (Eph 6:10). Three introductory modules will assist you in fine-tuning your skills and defining your purpose as you move into the extensive process of consolidating your hard-earned knowledge into a dissertation or a series of Doctoral projects.
Because of the enormous flexibility of the WCI program, students may work with their mentor to structure their program in the context of their individual interests, and professional and academic goals. Read the complete module descriptions for information as well as ideas – think of them as a set of guidelines, rather than rules. They will also give you ideas on areas you may wish to pursue most aggressively, in your graduate program.
The requirement is to complete 160 ECTS credits (80 US-style credits). These credits are split as follows:
- 3 modules (24 ECTS credits)
- PhD Dissertation (136 ECTS credits)
The PhD in Practical Theology is in essence a research-only program. The modules are delivered online and through direct communication with your mentor, but are merely to fine tune your skills and prepare you for the research and writing. The three modules are a month in length and consist of:
- Bible Overview and Exploration of Practical Theology Topics.
- How to Develop a Relevant and Cutting-Edge Dissertation Topic and Perform the Necessary Research.
- Editing and Re-Editing – How to Fine Tune your Topic and Present your Dissertation Idea for Approval. This may be repeated until your idea is specific and focused and you are ready to proceed.
These modules are designed to help you develop your topic and thought processes. You will need to work with your mentor to divide your work into 160 ECTS credits. All research work must be approved by the Academic Board in the first instance, and you may receive further questions of clarity from your committee. Because of the flexibility of the WCI program and large numbers of possible topics, learners can work with their mentor to structure their program in the context of their professional and academic goals. Always keep in mind that the idea within this program is to be practical or pragmatic in your approach. Will this idea be useful and push the theological world forward?
