The PhD in Theology and Worship track exists to advance the understanding and practice of worship life in the Christian church. It integrates four sub-disciplines (history, theology, anthropology, and worship studies) in order to prepare students for future roles in local church worship leadership, academic research and scholarship, and higher education classroom instruction.
