Published by Calvin Seminary

This fall, Calvin Theological Seminary announced the expansion of its PhD program into New Testament studies, beginning in fall 2020.

Calvin Seminary has offered a PhD program for over 25 years, with concentrations available in systematic, moral, and philosophical theology, as well as the history of Christianity. The New Testament concentration will be the first option available in biblical studies.

Professor Jeff Weima – serving as an advisor in developing the new concentration – not only sees this additional option as important to the work of the seminary as a whole, but predicts it will be attractive to prospective students: “There are many strengths to our PhD program and we are eager for prospective students to explore the details. Perhaps the most salient feature for potential applicants, however, is that our program includes a full tuition scholarship and a generous living stipend for four years.”

The addition of the New Testament concentration enhances an already robust PhD program with several distinctive strengths including scholarships and stipend funds, a long list of academic resources, and a rich learning community shaped by confessional Reformed scholarship.

Applications for this program are now being accepted. For more information and to apply, visit
