Doctor of Philosophy
Designed for qualified candidates (lay people or clergy) who wish to undertake specialised, high level post-graduate research in Theology. The Doctor of Philosophy award is the highest possible qualification available, granting students the opportunity to make an original and significant contribution to knowledge in their chosen subdiscipline.
We have a growing group of people doing PhD studies with the College. We can offer supervision in almost any area of area of Biblical or theological studies. We believe that we offer and ideal environment for doctoral studies, through our research-focussed faculty and the support of CSU.
One of the major advantages of being with Charles Sturt University is the support we can offer doctoral students. From across all the campuses (Adelaide, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane) we can provide a supervisory team from a large number of leading Australian scholars.
There are also scholarship opportunities available through CSU for which you can apply.
CSU has an excellent collection of online journals which our students have direct access to. In addition to this, students are provided membership to the SBC library collection and the Lohe Memorial Library. The Adelaide Theological Library is also a good resource; students need to contact the ATL directly for information concerning borrowing rights.
We can supervise in the areas of Old Testament, Biblical Hebrew, Biblical Greek, New Testament, Systematic Theology, Practical Theology, and Church History.
