Illuminate God’s Word
The word “theology” has come down to us from the Greek; theou logos. Quite simply it means “God’s Word.” That is probably the best summary of this program we can give. As a theology student, you will get to study God’s Word that He has revealed to us through the Scriptures and illuminate that Word for others.
The Theology program of Concordia University Wisconsin gives you a strong understanding of the Christian faith that will support you in your chosen vocation. As a university of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), our courses are taught in accord with the Lutheran Confessions. The Theology program is not intended to stand alone. Rather, it is intended primarily for those of you who are preparing for certification as professional church workers such as Lutheran School Teachers or Lay Ministers/Directors of Church Ministries. (That is why the internship is specific to your track.) If you aren’t interested in the education or church ministries routes, we highly recommend checking out the Christian Thought program.
What to expect
You can expect to benefit from a well-rounded study of biblical and systematic theology, along with the application of that theology in your life within the Christian Church. You’ll join renowned scholars as you delve into the Old and New Testaments, systematic doctrine, and practical theology (teaching and worship). We offer many theology electives, so you can explore and grow in the particular areas that interest you.
