Minor in Biblical Studies
The Biblical Studies minor is an excellent complement to any academic major. All undergraduates complete 15 hours in Bible and Theology as part of their Frameworks general education requirement. By adding only two additional courses, you will complete the Biblical Studies minor. These two additional credits include a course that introduces students to study in the field of Bible and Theology and an elective course from any offered by the Department of Theology.
The Biblical Studies minor is intended to provide a grounding in Bible and Theology for students majoring in another field. Using a variety of learning methods, instructors introduce the material of the Old and New Testaments and help students begin the adventure of theological treatment of these inspired writings. One course is specifically designed to equip the student for study in the area of Bible and Theology. Study in the Scriptures is pursued in a course focused on a particular book of the Bible and in an elective course that provides advanced study of an area in Bible or Theology.
Each of Evangel's academic programs is made up of a set of core curriculum, program requirements and electives. The courses listed below are just a small sample of courses that might be taken as a part of this specific program.
