Theology courses teach an understanding and appreciation for the Christian intellectual tradition and the Bible.

Courses in Greek and Hebrew lay the essential linguistic foundations for those who teach and proclaim the Bible as well as teach the language skills necessary to a liberal arts program. Courses in church history, philosophy and theology equip the student to gain insight into philosophical problems and representative systems of thought, to understand important doctrines of the Christian faith and to understand the development, expansion and historical impact of Christianity.
