Academic credentials

Academic credentials: those who have gained a Master of Theology (MTh) degree, Master of Sacred Theology (STM), Master of Philosophy (MPhil) or Master of Arts (MA) + MDiv from an accredited theological institution.

English language proficiency

English is not a primary language for Ethiopians but it is the only media of the Ethiopian higher education institutions, including theological institutions. Doctoral program applicants must, therefore, have a very good command of spoken and written English, which will be carefully tested through entrance exam and interviews.

Basic Biblical language

Basic knowledge of the Biblical languages, Hebrew I & II and Greek I & II, with a minimum of “C” grade in each.
