In Bethany Lutheran College’s Religion major, you will examine religion in the context of history, sociology, and philosophy. 


Our Religion major at the Bethany Lutheran College assumes the perspective of confessional Lutheranism rooted in the Reformation heritage of Christ Alone. In this way our major is distinct from other religious studies programs.

Through your studies you will gain a deep understanding of Lutheran doctrine and tradition, the broader Christian tradition, and the fair comparison of that tradition with other major world religions. Additionally, the religion major provides a solid foundation for future studies in a variety of fields such as history, law, the social sciences, literature, and public administration.
