Theology & Ethics

The Minor in Theology and Ethics is a flexible program of study designed for students pursuing vocations outside of the church and who have a particular interest in Christian ethics and social justice. It is also suitable for those who may be interested in eventual graduate study. It can easily be paired with a number of other majors offered by the University, allowing students to draw upon the rich offerings of the Department as they think about their vocational pursuits in relation to the broad contours of the Christian faith.

The Minor in Theology and Ethics will appeal to two groups of students: (1) Students in other majors who are explicitly interested in a deeper engagement with the disciplines of Theology and Ethics that cannot be had in the General Education courses offered by the Department, and (2) Students majoring in Youth Ministry or Biblical Studies who want a simple way to increase their exposure to the context and content of the Christian theological/ethical tradition.
