Major in Theological Studies and Christian Ministry

In today’s world, Christian ministry finds expression in careers and callings across the spectrum of human endeavors—in church-related ministries, health care, social work, law, psychology, education, business, and much more. This program of study is designed for students who want a theological exploration of Christian ministry (in the broadest sense) in relation to discerning their life’s work.

Students who major in theological studies and Christian ministry must successfully complete the following six academic courses:

REL 200 Introduction to Biblical Studies
REL 230 Christian Social Ethics
REL 240 World Religions: General Introduction
REL 280 Ministry: Callings and Practice
REL 320 The Emergence of Christian Thought
REL 321 Modern and Contemporary Christian Thought

Two experiential courses (full course credit) of their choice from the department's internships or international study courses; and the department’s senior capstone course for a total of at least nine course credits. Experiential courses from academic departments outside the Department of Religious Studies may be acceptable with the consent of the department chair.
