The department of religion is a learning community committed to the church and to the academy, dedicated to the study of Scripture, theology, mission, leadership, and spirituality for the purpose of transforming individuals, relationships and communities.

Overview

The department of religion houses both the biblical studies and leadership studies disciplines as part of the college, and serves both undergraduate and graduate programs within professional studies. The curriculum for the religion major is administered through concentrations in biblical studies, Christian formation and discipleship, intercultural studies, pastoral leadership studies, and youth leadership studies.
