The Christian Theology specialization offers students an opportunity to explore the beliefs, texts, practices, and ethics of the Christian tradition from an in-depth, theological perspective.
If students want to study religions such as Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism in addition to Christianity, they may choose to specialize in Comparative Religion in which they examine these traditions in themselves or in dialogue with each other.
The honors major in theology and religious studies offers an opportunity for motivated and capable students to engage in more extensive interaction with faculty and to complete challenging individual research projects that will further their personal and professional goals.
