Biblical Studies Major (A)
The Biblical Studies major forms students to serve Christ in the church and in the world with a focus on the Bible. Students will learn the main message of the Bible and will begin to mine its depths in order to prepare for professional church work, study for graduate school in Christian theology or a related field, or be a more informed lay leader in a Christian congregation. This study is a good foundation for further work not only in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod but for all Christian denominations.
