Theology encompasses a system of religious beliefs and teachings, often outlining a set of ethical standards to be upheld. With the theology and ethics emphasis, you’ll explore systems from throughout the world and through various periods in history in order to better understand current beliefs.
- This emphasis builds on biblical foundations, discussing a wide range of topics from Latin American religious thought to Mennonite history.
- You will select from courses on contemporary theologies, philosophical ethics, Roman politics, the theology of mission and more.
A solid understanding of theology and ethics proves useful in many fields: careers in education, justice, history and ministry are just a few of the possibilities.
