Students who choose to major in theology may choose one of two different minors: religious education, pastoral ministry and youth ministry. These programs have been designed to meet the needs of the church in the United States for educated lay people who are called to lay ecclesial ministry. Undergraduate students will be exposed to basic theological orientations and skills that will assist them to develop their own spirituality and gifts for service and ministry to children, youth and adults in the Christian community. Students who major in Theology cannot also minor in General Theology.
*At present, the Scripture and History sequences are offered in alternating years.
*Note that one-credit reading courses count toward total credits required for the major or minor in Theology. (Students may not take more than 12 credit hours on a pass/fail basis as part of the 120 credits counting toward their degree.)
To earn a Bachelor of Arts in Theology, students must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours. Students must also earn a major GPA of 2.0, and a cumulative GPA of 2.0.
