Theo 200 Series: STB, MA, Certificate Courses
Theo 300 Series: STL, STD, DMin, PhD Courses
SS Series: MA, PhD Biblical Exegesis Program

In courses which are generally open for enrollment to STB and MA students as well as to STL, STD, DMin, or PhD students, professors are to require additional and advanced scholarly work commensurate to the levels of study of the latter group of students. This may take the form of some substantial reading and theological writing normally expected of licentiate and doctorate students.

* Electives in the MA, STL, DMin, and PhD programs are those courses which do not belong to one’s chosen field of concentration.
