Applicants should have a regionally-accredited masters’ degree totaling 48 hours, with at least 12 hours in biblical or theological studies and at least 12 hours in leadership, administration, education, or ministry studies.
If you lack the required hours of masters-level credit, you may submit a doctoral equivalency evaluation to the admissions office to find out if you qualify for SBTS EdD programs.*
A minimum master’s level cumulative grade point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale is expected.
