A degree in Theology  at Houghton College will prepare you for entrance into seminary or other graduate institutions as well as for missionary work that requires a liberal arts degree.


Theology. For some, this word conjures up images of ancient books, pulpit-poundings and theses nailed to old doors—something born and aged in the years of yesterday. If, however, you find yourself craving a deeper understanding of theology than this definition provides, the theology program at Houghton would be a good fit for you.

The comprehensive major in theology is designed for those who want a liberal arts degree with a maximum of Biblical and theological studies. Recipients of a theology degree consistently testify of how well their education at Houghton shaped them into someone qualified and passionate to fulfill God’s calling on their lives and of their continued desire for him to work through them for His glory.
