The religion core courses operate at the center of the liberal arts enterprise. These foundational courses in Bible, theology and ethics promote a thoughtful appropriation of historic Christian faith that catalyzes a Christ-centered study of all the disciplines in the university, nurtures faithful discipleship within the Church, cultivates a sensitivity to the activity of the Spirit of God in the world, and encourages human responses to that action.

Faculty from both the Department of Theology and the Department of Christian Ministries are engaged in delivering the Religion Core to majors from across the university.

The Religion Core comprises coursework in:

  • Message of the Old Testament
  • Message of the New Testament
  • Introduction to Theology
  • Introduction to Christian Ethics
