Honorary PhD

Biblical University welcomes applications and nominations for Honorary Degrees.

An honorary degree, in Latin a degree honoris causa ("for the sake of the honor") or ad honorem ("to the honor"), is an academic degree for which a university (or other degree-awarding institution) has waived the usual requirements, such as matriculation, residence, a dissertation, and the passing of comprehensive examinations. The degree is typically a doctorate or, less commonly, a master's degree, and may be awarded to someone who has no prior connection with the academic institution or no previous postsecondary education.

An honorary degree is the honour bestowed within the power of the Biblical University, and as such is a reflection of the Biblical University of highest aspirations, mission, and values, and in particular where those values are reflected by individuals whose extraordinary achievements result in “changing lives and improving life”.

In conferring honorary degrees the Biblical University seeks to recognize extraordinary achievement, and to honour individuals whose accomplishments demonstrate both a transformative impact and standard of excellence such that they provide. Individuals receiving an honorary degree become ambassadors for the University; thus, through their association and engagement should enhance the reputation of the Biblical University.
