Concentration in Biblical Studies
The Biblical Studies concentration will give you the tools to understand what the Bible says (hermeneutics) and what it means (theology) and how to use it. This program, along with the worldview you develop from our Frameworks courses (general education), will equip you to interact with your world and make personal application to your life calling.
A concentration in Biblical Studies is just six credits shy of the major. The program includes Sophomore Seminar, which emphasizes research and writing, hermeneutics, Old Testament and New Testament theology, intensive book studies and a combination of electives to suit your interest and calling.
