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 the School of Theology & Ministry (STM) 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
