Theology/Religious Studies, BA


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 introductory courses that are required of all students at the University). This allows ample room for a second major and/or minor or concentration in many fields. Theology majors must take T/RS 490 , the Theology Capstone Seminar in their final semester. Students considering pursing graduate study in Theology or a career in teaching or ministry should work with their advisor to ensure that important aspects of the discipline are covered.
