By examining the historical development of Christian beliefs through contemporary times in the Christian Studies programme, you'll build an understanding of Christianity's place at the crossroads of religion, politics and culture.

About

The Christian Studies program focuses on big questions raised by Christianity. This theoretical emphasis can often be neglected in seminary education, where the focus generally falls on practical ministry skills. Studies in Greek, Hebrew, Latin, German and French on campus help you to get to the root of original Christian writings, as well as to interpret firsthand major Christian theologians.

Students who have graduated from Roanoke's Religion, Christian Studies and Philosophy programs have gone on to graduate study at institutions, such as Loyola University, Princeton Seminary, Luther Seminary and the University of Tennessee.

Understanding the way Christianity interacts with the contemporary world can be crucial not only for the ministry, but also for careers as diverse as public policy, foreign service, counseling, media and the law.
