Doctoral Programs

Our graduate students engage in doctoral work to expand on theories and complexities touched on in their master’s program and to become leaders in their profession.

At Bethel, we wrap our institutional mission into advanced curriculum, preparing whole professionals who serve from a foundation of ethics, compassion, and personal conviction. Our students find that they can continue to serve as administrators or teachers during their program, experiencing the right blend of challenging work and personal support.
