Degree Programs

Four robust major programs offer students individual areas of focus.

Our religion majors and minor allow our students to prepare for the future, whether a career in Christian ministry, international business, education, nonprofit or government.

BIBLICAL STUDIES

A major in biblical studies is anchored in the study of scripture. The defining texts of Judaism and Christianity are a great starting point for understanding Jewish and Christian history, theology and Christian ethics. This major would be a great fit if you want to enter ministry or as preparation for seminary or graduate school.

CHRISTIAN HISTORY AND THEOLOGY

A major in Christian history and theology focuses on Christian theology, the value of the church and the day-to-day devotion of ordinary believers. Ultimately, you’ll better understand and share in the worship of God and love of your neighbors.

ETHICS, CULTURE AND SOCIAL WITNESS

A major in ethics, culture and social witness covers topics such as:

  • How do religion and culture influence each other?
  • How can Christians engage in moral reflection?
  • What does it mean to care for the earth, to seek justice, and to the things that make for peace, to bind up the wounds of people who are afflicted?
