Joint Doctoral Program in the Study of Religion
This PhD program is a joint venture between the University of Denver and the Iliff School of Theology. With faculty from both schools equally available for coursework and mentoring, the Joint Doctoral Program (JDP) combines the expansive opportunities of the University of Denver with the deep theological resources of the Iliff School of Theology. Coursework emphasizes interdisciplinary dialogue and research. Classes are taught by faculty from the University’s graduate schools of Professional Psychology, Social Work, Education and International Studies, as well as faculty in the departments of Anthropology, Art History, Economics, English, Philosophy, Religious Studies, the Center for Judaic Studies, and many others. This degree equips students to become scholar-teachers who are committed to addressing contemporary social and spiritual matters.
