The Department of Religion and Theology seeks to graduate students who are knowledgeable in the scriptures and develop students who pursue and embrace a vocation of ministry and learning for the common good. The Department provides two majors, Religion and Theology. The Religion major is designed to prepare students for further academic studies in graduate and/or professional schools. The Theology major combines practical experience with professional and academic courses to prepare students for entry into a ministry vocation immediately upon graduation. In addition to the two majors, the department also provides a minor in religion, a minor in theology, and a certificate in theology.
