Doctoral studies at the Department of Theology lead to the “PhD in Theology” degree and normally last somewhere between three and six academic years. Extension of the PhD studies up to twelve (12) months beyond the six years might be possible on the grounds of ‘force majeure’ situations properly supported by official documentation.
Alternatively, the extension request could be made by a postgraduate supervisor for research purposes related to the supervised student.
The successful writing and support of a doctoral thesis is the principal element during the second cycle of postgraduate studies. Indeed, the doctoral thesis should be the outcome of extensive and original research properly defended before a committee of seven Faculty members and academics from other establishments.
The PhD candidate is also required to work closely with his/her Supervisor as well as the other two members of the Supervising Committee especially with regard to academic events and initiatives.
Adherents of other Christian denominations and/or religions will also receive a special title of qualification.
