36 Credit Hours
2 Years (Average)

Prerequisites: Master’s Degree or Equivalent

A Ph.D. by publication is a postgraduate research degree that’s based on research you’ve already undertaken and had published before enrolling with CBIS.

Peer-reviewed academic papers, complete books or chapters in anthologies, and any other materials accepted for publication, exhibited or performed are all eligible. You’ll have to submit these materials for examination after enrolling with CBIS.

These materials will be accompanied by a commentary of 5,000-10,000 words, which outlines your work’s coherence, significance and contribution to knowledge, and you’ll be examined through an oral defense of your research. Applicants must hold a Masters or Doctorate degree from a bible college or seminary in order to qualify for this program.
