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 concentration in Biblical Studies is for students wishing to undertake an intensive study of scripture and biblical languages. 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 four additional 300/400 level biblical studies courses and three 300/400 Christian Ministry electives. A student may declare a Biblical Studies concentration at any point through the seventh semester.
