Student Handbook

We invite you to read the 2020-2021 Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts Graduate Student Handbook  and the Ministry Graduate Student Handbook which attempt to provide for current students a detailed “roadmap” for navigating participation in the ministerial graduate programs. We also know that nothing takes the place of personal conversation and relationships. Students using these Handbooks are urged to do so in dialogue with Theology department faculty and staff of the Braniff Graduate School.
