The Master of Philosophy in Theology (M.Phil.) at Bushnell University provides an opportunity for students with advanced graduate standing to complete a rigorous research degree program in an area of focused, personal interest. This program has six start dates per year.
Upon acceptance into the Master of Philosophy in Theology program, students will work under the supervision and mentorship of an approved Bushnell University faculty member to develop and conduct a course of substantial, original research culminating in a master’s thesis.
This program accommodates ministers, lay leaders, and other church and para-church professionals who have completed some level of graduate studies and who 1) have not yet completed a graduate degree in theology, or 2) wish to complete an additional degree to enhance career and/or education opportunities, or 3) simply wish to continue their pursuit of life-long learning.
Graduates of the Master of Philosophy in Theology:
Applicants who do not meet prerequisite requirements for admission may be granted conditional admission with a specified plan and timetable for making up deficiencies. Though it may be possible for some prerequisite deficiencies to be absolved through regular coursework at Bushnell, the University does not guarantee the availability of such course work and the making up of prerequisites remains the responsibility of the student.
