The Doctor of Philosophy is a higher degree by research.
Enquiries regarding admission—please contact the ALC Associate Dean for Research, Dr Jeff Silcock (firstname.lastname@example.org).
PhD graduates will have further developed their knowledge and experience in a theological discipline, and honed their critical scholarly skills within that discipline, through the writing of a 100,000 word thesis, which will form a distinct contribution to theological learning, and will show evidence of original research and the exercise of independent critical power.
PhD candidates present their research in a single thesis of not more 100,000 words. Each candidate is at first admitted to probationary candidature, and must have their project assessed by a Confirmation Panel no later than 12 months into candidature. Every candidate must also complete a postgraduate unit in Research Methodologies.
For published information specific to this course, including the associated regulation, go to the Doctor of Philosophy.
ALC operates with a policy of credit transfer and recognition of prior learning (RPL); see the Course Credit Policy.
The Research Methodologies unit is taught either face-to-face, by workshop and/or online.
