DSheldon22 Posted July 4, 2019 Share Posted July 4, 2019 Hi Everyone! I am currently in an MTS/ThM program with a concentration in church history, and as I continue, I have been drawn to broader American religious history looking at the intersection of politics and culture. I have found post-1865/20th Century American religious history most intriguing. In looking at the next step, I am confident a Ph.D. is where that next step will be. I have looked into both religious studies and history departments, as from my research this intersection has a foot in both camps. The list right now is Norte Dame, Baylor, Virginia, UChicago, Emory, Yale. All have different pros and cons. Norte Dame seems top-notch not only because of the caliber, overall fit, program, and location for my family. While Baylor's program with Thomas Kidd & Barry G. Hankins seems like the closest to my interest, but I am personally worried about Baylor's marketability in jobs after the Ph.D. I would be looking to apply for Fall 2021, as I will be graduating Spring/Summer 2020. Thus, I wanted to reach out to this form to see if there any programs/advisors you all would recommend looking into and any other advice that you would feel like sharing. If you would like clarification on anything feel free to ask or PM me Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
