Specializing your degree in theology and apologetics will help you refine your skill in biblical interpretation. Develop a healthy scrutiny of religious groups who claim to be Christian yet deny fundamental Christian doctrines. You will also examine major world religions, their basic beliefs, and practices. Being equipped to detect flaws and differences in people’s theology will strengthen your teaching and leadership capabilities.
Additionally, you will receive the foundational knowledge of the Bible that you need to excel in any ministry field through this degree’s core curriculum in youth ministries. You’ll take courses in cultural engagement, apologetics, inductive Bible study, and hermeneutics. You’ll also study topics like global youth culture, strategies for student outreach, and ministering to adolescents in crisis.
