Doctoral Programs

Wabash Center Work with Doctoral Progams

The Wabash Center’s “Preparing Future Faculty” program works with doctoral programs in religious and theological studies, to support efforts to form doctoral students for teaching as part of their preparation for a successful academic career.

Doctoral education has traditionally focused on developing research and writing skills, and teaching has been considered an inevitable by-product of effective scholarship. Thus, most graduates learned how to teach when they began their first job.Yet many graduates will find academic appointments where good teaching and student learning are central to the institutional mission. Recognizing this, and pressured by the tighter job market, doctoral programs are increasingly seeking ways to form their students for teaching as part of their preparation for a successful academic career. The Wabash Center’s “Preparing Future Faculty” program seeks to address these challenges.

Eligibility: Ph.D or Th.D programs in religious or theological studies in the U.S. and Canada
