The mission of the BA in Theology is to educate students in the traditional theological disciplines (biblical studies and languages, theology, church history, etc.) so that the students will be prepared to (1) enter seminary, (2) pursue a graduate research degree, or (3) enter a career appropriate to a broad-based liberal arts educations (not necessarily within ministry). The Theology degree is a good program for students interested in scholarship. No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
Course Requirements (128 Cr. Hrs.)
Required courses in the major include the following list. Additionally, students must complete five additional 300/400 level Christian theology courses and four 300/400 Christian Ministry electives. Christian Theology majors are required to use the sequence of CHR 312 and CHR 328 to meet the foreign language requirement.
