Individualized Concentration

  • Completion of 33 credit hours of required courses, plus a 0-credit-hour library research course, a 0-credit-hour academic writing seminar and three four-day, on-campus residencies.
  • Completion of 15 credit hours of concentration courses.
  • Completion of a minimum of 12 credit hours of dissertation.
  • Successful completion of the comprehensive exams following the student's coursework.
  • Completion of all requirements associated with the doctoral dissertation, including oral defense.
  • Ph.D. students must maintain enrollment in each of the three terms (fall, spring, summer) per year. Students who do not register for a term indicate a decision to withdraw from the Ph.D. program.
    • Students in their coursework phase may register for LPHD865 - 1 credit of dissertation continuation, rather than a course, to maintain continuous enrollment.
  • A student may request a one-year leave of absence from the program, thus removing the need to be enrolled, for the following reasons:
    • Medical/physical incapacitation due to illness or injury - either of the student or the student's spouse, for which the student is the caregiver.
    • Loss caused by natural disaster such as hurricane or tornado.
    • Military deployment to a war zone.

Students enrolled in the Individualized concentration have the flexibility to design a 15-credit-hour concentration drawing on doctoral-level courses offered in any of the Regent University graduate schools. A student's concentration must be approved by his/her academic advisor. If other Regent graduate school courses proposed in a concentration require prior approval for SBL Ph.D. student participation, this approval must be obtained and provided to the student's academic advisor.
