Our graduate division was established in 1966 to offer a program of study for graduates of accredited Bible colleges. In 1992 it became a separate school, and its name was changed to Calvary Theological Seminary. Programs of study include pastoral studies, biblical counseling, biblical studies, Bible and theology, and religious studies. The curriculum is built on 3-semester-hour courses. It is offered in both a ""semester format"" for resident students and a ""modular format"" for nonresident students. The Seminary provides graduate instruction in Bible/theology and professional studies for qualified students, preparing them for a professional Christian ministry within and through the Christian church and church-related ministries.

The mission of the PhD in Bible and Theology program is to produce outstanding exegetes of the Bible in its original languages and theologians who are able to contribute to and articulate scholarship in the Biblical worldview, and who can serve both the academy and the church as researchers in the field of Biblical and theological studies, promulgating their findings through publication, education and leadership.
