There have been a few posts and discussions lately about advice on preparing for Ph.D. studies. We’ve already noted Allen Yeh’s advice on pursuing doctoral programs, and my comments. And, of course, just today Ben Johnson gave us his thoughts on what it’s like to transition from a Th.M. to a Ph.D. in the UK. And, he noted a couple of other helpful posts by Ben Blackwell and Nijay Gupta.
Near Emmaus has posted a couple of other good sources of advice on this subject that I thought might interest you:
- Daniel Kirk argues for the M.DIV as the best pre-Ph.D degree for seminarians here.
- Kevin Chen, who has recently completed his Ph.D, describes several things he would have done different/things of which current seminarians need to be aware before doing a Ph.D here.
