Division of Christian Studies

The Division of Christian Studies prepares the way for vocational Christian service by providing a strong foundation for students involved in ministry and especially for those planning to continue studies in seminary. The Division of Christian Studies is designed for students with a life-long commitment to Christian ministry. In addition to academic study focusing on biblical languages, theology, interpretation and proclamation, the division faculty offer cross cultural mission trips, trips to seminary conferences and fellowship opportunities that greatly enrich the educational experience. Partnerships with several seminaries also provide incentives to help expedite a graduate's work toward a seminary degree.
