Licentiate and Doctorate Courses
Theo 300 Series: STL, STD, PhD Courses
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 STL, STD, and PhD programs are those courses which do not belong to one’s chosen field of concentration.
