Department of Religious and Theological Studies

The Religious and Theological Studies program is designed to offer students a comprehensive approach to the study of religion and theological inquiry. The courses assist students in developing faculties for critical thinking and in attaining a historical view of religion.

In addition to core courses that provide a solid foundation in the discipline, the student completes the major or minor by selecting from the curriculum courses that allow pursuit of particular interests in Religious Studies or Theology. For example, students may focus on world religions, systemic theology, biblical studies or another area within the discipline. As they select their courses, students design for themselves a program that matches their interests and meets their needs. The Religious and Theological Studies program prepares students for graduate school, seminary, pastoral ministry and other professional opportunities.
