The Theology major is available with a concentration in church history. The concentration in theology develops analytical, reflective, and expressive skills in the study of theology in a historical context. Students are trained in the use of interdisciplinary methods from history, sociology, psychology, philosophy, cultural anthropology, and theology to perform a thoughtful examination of the history of the Christian Church in light of the Church’s Scriptures and traditions. Students who complete the church history concentration will be well equipped for graduate study in ministry, church history, historical theology, or systematic theology as well as the history of religion.
