Religious Studies (Biblical Languages) at Liberty University is going to prepare you for a challenging and enriching life of ministry. We know that you want to pursue God, so we are providing the necessary resources for you to do so in a powerful way.
As someone who is passionate about serving God, there are many different career paths you can take that will allow you to pursue ministry. Providing resources as an author or archaeologist so that others can defend their faith is an exciting way to serve God. You could also work on translating God’s Word into a language that is lacking biblical resources.
One of the most valuable resources available to you as a student is your professors. They are professionals with years of ministerial experience. Plus, they are all working on or have already earned their doctorate degree in a related field. Their passion in life is training people like you to go out and serve God with a unique set of skills.
