Overview

How are we to make moral choices? You’ll develop a greater understanding of people, interrelationships and morally important contemporary societal issues as you take 42 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree.

We offer a bachelor degree in Theology at Concordia University, St. Paul. Our diverse metropolitan location is ideal for experiencing and testing different theological perspectives. Since we design our theology program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering a church career, seminary studies or graduate school.

Students in the major in theology will be able to summarize the contents and evangelical message of the biblical text, as this Word of God focuses on Jesus Christ. They will come to an awareness of the basic assumptions about reality that are foundational to Christianity, understood from the perspective of the Christian gospel. 

Through coursework students will acquire a familiarity with the history of Christianity and Christian theology in its various contexts and expressions. Students will come to understand the larger body of Christian teaching in relationship to the New Testament gospel, and grow in an ability to apply a Lutheran theological perspective to the study of historical, doctrinal, and societal issues.
