Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Area: Majors and Minors

Students majoring in Theology complete 9 courses in Theology.  These include:  Two Biblical courses, two History courses (including TH 280 ), two Systematics courses (TH 251  and TH 282 ), one Moral/Ethics course, and one Comparative Theology course. The remaining course is a Theology elective.  Among these courses, Theology majors must take three seminars. Exceptions to this policy can be made at the discretion of the department Chair and the Dean of the College.  Every major must present, in the senior year, a research paper based on work done as part of the requirements of one of these seminars under the supervision of the professor who directed the seminar. The successful completion of a comprehensive examination is also required of theology majors.
