The program aims to form students as both scholars and teachers, equipping students with the skills to do research that matters in the field of Historical Theology and preparing students to teach a range of courses at the undergraduate level. There are three areas of specialization in the doctoral program: early Christianity, medieval Christianity, and modern Christianity.
