About

The Christianity program at the Houston Baptist University states that anyone who wants to more deeply understand God’s work in the world will enjoy pursuing a Christianity major or minor in the Department of Theology. 

Overview

The Christianity program at the Houston Baptist University is especially appropriate for those who wish to serve the body of Christ as a minister in a church, a missionary, someone in parachurch ministry, or in whatever setting God calls you. We value our Baptist heritage, but our faculty and students are broadly evangelical, drawing from a variety of traditions and denominations. Thus, we welcome anyone who would wish to study with us.

The Christianity major is the broadest of our four undergraduate degrees. It is 38 credit hours-long, with 17 hours of core classes, 15 hours of electives, and 6 hours of language. The core courses for the major are New Testament Theology, Old Testament Theology, History of Christianity, Hermeneutics, Systematic Theology, and the Senior Seminar. We also offer a wide variety of electives which allow you to tailor your studies to your interests, such as Jesus and the Gospels, Romans, the Christian Vocation, Revelation, Homiletics, Paul and His Letters, Isaiah, the Reformation, and Spiritual Formation.

Covenant Fellows

The purpose of the Covenant Fellows Program is to give students called to Christian ministry financial, personal and professional support as they further their undergraduate development into competent and holistically educated ministers/professors/missionaries. HBU covenants with our students and with local churches to provide education and professional experiences that will prove beneficial to both those studying in the program and those churches supporting and employing our ministerial students.
