Minor in Theology

theology department

Drawing on an internationally recognized theological faculty, students pursuing a minor in theology may choose either to explore the various areas of the discipline of theology generally, or to focus on one area in particular. For example, a minor might engage the teachings and spirituality of the roman Catholic Church; or a particular era in the history of the Christian theology; or current ethical issues; or Jewish Studies; or biblical studies; or the beliefs and practices of another major world religion—or all of the above.


The minor in Theology requires the six-credit Core and 15 additional credits. Nine of these additional credits must be above the Core level and only one course may be level one.
