The theology minor and major are intended primarily for students who are preparing for certification as professional church workers such as Lutheran School Teachers or Lay Ministers. For this reason an internship in the appropriate area of professional church work is included in the requirements. Other students interested in theological study should consider a minor or major in Christian Thought.
