Doctoral Departments and Concentrations

The GTU’s new doctoral curriculum builds on the ecumenical, interreligious, and interdisciplinary strengths of the GTU, and enhances opportunities for both specialization and cross-disciplinary study. Beginning in fall 2016, students entering GTU PhD and ThD programs can choose their fields of study from among more than thirty concentrations grouped into four interdisciplinary departments:

Missiology

About this Concentration

Homiletics

About this Concentration

Students in the Homiletics concentration work to become scholar-teachers who are conversant with the body of literature associated with the history, theology, theories, and practices of preaching. They engage in dialogue with other disciplines (e.g., theological, biblical, cultural, rhetorical and performative studies) in order to interpret and construct theories of proclamation for diverse public, cultural, and ecclesial contexts.
