African Theology PhDs

Postby Deano » Sat Feb 16, 2013 4:49 pm

Hi, is anyone aware of good options for PhD programs besides SATS, Auckland, and UNISA (my preferred choice right now, but looks like they aren't taking applications until August). I've looked at Pretoria but so far as I can tell, it doesn't offer distance degrees.
North West University is apparently an option, though as far as I can tell, they only offer PhD through Greenwich, which is as expensive (if not more so) than other UK schools.

IIRC North West University will also take theology students directly.

Uncle Janko, the dear late dean of this board, did his Th.D. with the University of Zululand. ETA: Also Bill Grover, who's been here on and off through the years.

I'll look into those, thanks.

Didn't someone do his through South Africa's University of the Free State? Brad Sweet, maybe?

I doubt that UZ will offer a distance doc in Christian studies now.

In addition to the programs named, I've heard good things about Stellenbosch University for theological or missiological studies. No firsthand experience, so I include the caveat of this being anecdotal. Might be worth throwing into the hopper.

Peace,

Greetings, I have been aiming at SATS for MTh or PhD.

I am just curious, Original Poster, any particular reasons you wanted to look beyond SATs, and at other SA schools?

Cost? Theological Persuasion? Just want to see all options?

Regards

Can anyone explain in greater detail the allure associated with the "African Theology PhDs"?
Cost is the only variable that immediately comes to mind, but in doing a bit of research, I've seen anything from $700 just to apply, $1063/year or $12,035 for an entire program.

I think it's cost + a fairly good reputation in terms of the programs offered and institutions offering the programs. Even the prices you noted above as a relative bargain compared to similar institutions in North America or Europe.
