Biblical Languages

This Area of Concentration is available to students affiliated with the following schools: ABSW, CDSP, DSPT, JST, PLTS, PSR, and SFTS.

Designed especially for highly qualified persons planning to pursue doctoral work in biblical studies, the program is also well-suited to persons desiring a terminal degree with a concentration in the biblical languages and a firm background in biblical studies. Prospective students are expected to have semester-length introductory courses in both Old and New Testament studies prior to entry, and advanced standing is available for those students who have previous comparable course work and/or are able to pass a language exam.

Biblical Studies

This Area of Concentration is available to students affiliated with the following schools: ABSW, CDSP, DSPT, JST, PLTS, PSR, and SFTS.

Study in this Area provides a strong foundation in the entire biblical corpus. In addition to the Jewish and Christian canonical, deuterocanonical, and extra-canonical scriptures, study also covers the background literature of early Israel, biblical and post-biblical Judaism, and early Christianity. The critical study of primary texts is emphasized, using a variety of analytical methods, interdisciplinary, and cross-cultural approaches. The development of skill in appropriate languages is central to the program.
