Concentration Requirements

 

The Theology concentration enables students to explore new directions that have emerged since the removal of theology as a dogmatic discipline from most liberal arts curricula. The focus is on how the divine or ultimate is conceived. While the critical study of religion is designed to describe and analyze religious systems within their historical settings, Theology's purpose is to engage what these systems claim to refer to.

 

Theology is a concentration (a secondary field of study) that requires students to major in a primary program along with Theology. A Theology core faculty member must be on both the Moderation board and the Senior Project board, and usually serves as adviser.
