Christian Theology Major
(Note: For an overview of programs in the School of Theology, visit the School of Theology in this Catalog.)
Note: The requirements for the major are in addition to meeting the Foundations requirements.
The Christian theology minor is intended for the student who wants to approach his or her major discipline from a perspective richly informed by the heritage of Christian thought and practice. As such, the student is given as much leeway as possible in course selection, within the general parameters established by the School of Theology for balanced and responsible theological inquiry.
Christian theology minors must take at least 30 upper-division credits in addition to the University Foundations requirements. They must take 5 credits of Christian heritage, 10 credits of Christian doctrine, 5 credtis of Christian ethics, and at least 20 credits of electives. Any course in heritage, doctrine, or ethics that are not already being counted toward the fulfillment of the program requirements may be taken as electives. Other acceptable courses are listed below.
9–10 credits of electives are required.
You may select any two additional 5-credit courses from those listed in the requirements or from the courses listed below:
