Religious Studies is a broad-based program that explores diverse religious perspectives. Students explore various world views, while keeping a Christian world view.
This major is for students who have a degree in another field (or are currently
working on another major), and do not intend to have ministry as their primary occupation. The 32 hours required for the degree are divided among Biblical, Religious, Ministry, Religious History, and Theology courses. This degree is designed for those who want to explore the
religious dimensions of life and/or desire to support themselves by working within the community yet provide a local congregation with strong leadership.
Aside from graduate studies in Religious Studies, other advanced study options include:
- World Religions
- Religious Education
