About

The Theological Studies program at the Houston Baptist University states that those who wish to explore the depth of the Christian theological tradition will enjoy the Theological Studies major or minor in the Department of Theology. Building on the core elements of biblical and theological knowledge, these programs emphasize the depth and breadth of Christian theology.

Overview

The Theological Studies program at the Houston Baptist University states that in learning how other Christians have responded to their own cultural issues, those with this degree will be well prepared to continue in that tradition of theologically robust engagement with the world. This degree is especially appropriate for those who want to serve the body of Christ in a teaching and preaching role as a minister in a church, as a missionary, someone in parachurch ministry, or in whatever setting God calls you.

The Theological Studies major is 38 credit hours-long, with 17 hours of core classes, 15 hours of Theological Studies classes, 3 hours of electives, and 3 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 Theology courses which allow you to tailor your studies to your interests, such as Trinitarianism, the Reformation, Baptist History, Christian Ethics, and studies of important Christian theologians.
