Theology

The theology major offers a comprehensive liberal arts education for those with a special interest in historical and contemporary Christianity, theology and ethics. Biblical and modern languages, history, sociology, topics in Christianity and the world religions join a range of business classes to prepare students for success in church work and leadership roles and/or further theological study.

The theology major is also offered as the undergraduate portion of Concordia’s 5-year Center for Contextual Leadership program. This tuition-scholarship option requires a pastor’s nomination, a 5-year post-graduation commitment to church work, and other considerations.
