Christian Thought Major

Bible & Theology Department

The Christian Thought major provides academic preparation in the study of the structure of Christian beliefs and practices. The major also offers spiritual preparation through personal and practical applications of the principles found in the theological heritage of the Christian faith. Students are prepared to engage society with the truth of the Christian message, and develop skills needed to progress to graduate level work and beyond in the areas of ministry, academic teaching, and other ministry-focused vocations.
