Major: Theological Studies
God reveals himself through his Word and, to a lesser degree, through his world. The Theological Studies Major examines the Bible, God’s revealed Word, in broad introductory overviews of the Holy Scriptures (isagogics) as well as in close reading of a particular biblical book (exegetical studies). The major also studies God’s providence in history. In addition, students receive practical training in the application of their studies in ministry to others. The Theological Studies Major offers some students the opportunity for a vocation in church, either as a primary or secondary calling.
Through participation in, and upon completion of, the Theological Studies Major at Concordia University Wisconsin, students will:
- Have a greater understanding of God’s Word, the Holy Scriptures
- Appreciate the value of sound Christian doctrine based squarely on the Bible
- Develop a heightened awareness of God’s working throughout history
- Grow in their relationship with Christ and put his teachings into practice in their vocations
- Employ various methods of delivering and defending biblical truth in a relevant and practical way to diverse groups
- Demonstrate an understanding of research skills
