Department of Religion

Description of Major

Religion majors become a part of a learning community that is both academically rigorous and sensitive to issues of faith development and spiritual formation. Students take courses in the areas of Biblical studies, theology and ethics, Christian history, world religions, and practical theology. The religion major not only prepares those who are called to a life of ministry in the church or academy but also helps those who are planning a career in other fields to apply a Biblical and theological worldview to their respective disciplines.
