Active scholars in New Testament and Old Testament provide significant research and mentoring in those areas. The emphasis on American religious history and experience fits well the Baylor context and has contributed important studies to the discipline. The theological interpretation of the Christian tradition is also significant in the doctoral program, with emphases in Patristics, contemporary theology, and ethical issues. In addition, the Department offers a colloquy in which doctoral students garner experience in teaching and instruction in the pedagogical task.
