Doctor of Theology in Old Testament
Prerequisite: 120 semester hour Th.M. with a minimum of 30 hours of biblical language coursework.
The Doctor of Theology in Old Testament focuses upon the History of the Jewish Monarchy. The Th.D. (Old Testament) program is a 60 semester hour program that is designed to be completed in approximately 4 years. Extensive translation of the Old Testament Historical Books is required, with the student translating all of 1 Samuel through 2 Kings. In conjunction with the translation work, students also will be required to perform in-depth exegesis of selected key passages within each book translated. Additional supplemental courses will complement the program so that the student is thoroughly immersed in the era of the Jewish Monarchy.
The Th.D. (Old Testament) requires students to complete a 50,000 word Doctoral Dissertation upon a topic selected by the student and approved by the ATS Academic Review Committee. Students will submit their topic for approval during the third year of coursework if the suggested timetable is followed. The dissertation is the pinnacle of the student’s doctoral work and should contribute to the field of study in a meaningful way.
The Th.D. in Old Testament program is an advance-at-your-own-pace program. Most students will complete the program in four to five years.
