Minors

The Minor in Theology forms a great complement to almost any area of study. Composed entirely of electives, students are able to construct any course of study they wish. It is the most manageable of any minor, as it consists of only four classes beyond the university requirements.

Theology Minor (12 credits):

  • Elective Courses:
    • elective #1 (Theo 2xxxx or higher)     
    • elective #2 (Theo 2xxxx or higher)
    • elective #3 (Theo 2xxxx or higher)
    • elective #4 (Theo 2xxxx or higher)
  • One elective may be satisfied by an ancient language class (Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Syriac, etc.)
