COMBINATION DEGREE PROGRAMS:  Although a Master’s/Doctoral combination degree program is available, students are not encouraged to complete both degrees in Christian Sales and Marketing.  Talk to a student advisor about a Master’s/Doctoral Combination Degree Program.

ABOUT THIS DEGREE PROGRAM:  The Doctor of Philosophy in Christian Sales and Marketing degree program will acquaint the student with a broad perspective of Christian Sales and Marketing.  The program consists of six courses which are the equivalent of thirty hours of study, a dissertation plus ten Christian Sales and Marketing Verbatim Reports.  (This number is reduced to five if the Student has completed a M.A. in Christian Sales and Marketing degree with NTS.)  Texts must be selected from the list of Authorized Textbooks provided below.  Although all textbooks may be ordered simultaneously, assignments must be submitted one at a time.  Once a textbook is read, a 10 to 20 page paper describing what was read must be submitted for grading.    A four to six page paper is required for each No Travel Seminar.  We are simply asking students for a summary of the material.

A one to three page paper is required for each Christian Sales and Marketing verbatim report.  Verbatim reports are word-for-word reports or summaries of actual sales talks, or presentations given or made to an individual or group of persons.  Verbatim reports may cover talks or presentations that include, but are not limited to, conversations in which you are attempting to sell or market an item or a concept to another individual or group of persons. Each verbatim report should begin with a paragraph describing the setting in which the Christian sales and marketing experience took place. Each verbatim report should conclude with a paragraph summarizing the Student’s perception of the result of the Christian sales and marketing experience.  Review the How to Submit Your Work tab concerning submission of assignments.

SPECIFIC DEGREE PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS:  The Doctor of Philosophy in Christian Sales and Marketing degree program requires a total of 50 hours.  This is comprised of six courses (30 hours) and a dissertation (20 hours).  Three of the six required courses, must be core courses chosen from the list of Authorized Textbooks provided below.  Up to three of the six required courses may be electives.  Electives may be chosen from the Electives Page or the No Travel Seminar tab.  Up to two of the Electives may be Textbook Alternates.  Alternates must be submitted for consideration via the Textbook Alternate Form tab.  No Travel Seminars are optional.  A maximum of three No Travel Seminars may be utilized for this program.
