Students are expected to have semester-length introductory courses in both Old and New Testament studies prior to entry. In the absence of these courses, students may be admitted but required to extend their program by the addition of these two three-unit courses. Other units are filled with biblical studies courses and courses in other areas of theology. Students complete an oral examination and a major research essay in lieu of a thesis.
