For more information about the Theology department, visit its website.


The Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology/Religious Studies requires 30 credits in the major (including the two introductory courses).  This allows ample room for a second major and/or minor or concentration in many fields. Theology majors must take at least four courses at the 300 or 400 level, including at least one semester of the Theology Capstone Seminar, T/RS 490 . To ensure a well-rounded background in the discipline, each major must take at least one course from each of the categories listed below:  While some courses are eligible to be counted in more than one category, they cannot double count.  Instead, in consultation with their advisor, students should select in which category they wish them to be placed.  Students may also request to customize their course selections in order to pursue specialized interests.

1 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100  and C/IL 102 -C/IL 104 .  In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
