Biblical and Theological Studies (BTS) invites students to disciplined, thoughtful reflection on the Bible, on the theological traditions and history of the church, and on the experiences and practices of Christian communities around the world.
CMU's emphasis on interdisciplinary learning brings biblical and theological studies into conversation with other programs of interest. By studying theology alongside science, humanities, and the social sciences, students will see how faith and life are connected, and how the study of theology contributes faithful action in the world.
Opportunities beyond the classroom provide chances for students to gain experiences related to their studies. Practicum placements, involvement in chapel, and participation in student leadership are some ways for students to explore their interests and skills in different aspects of ministry, while being supported by professors and staff. The Office of Ministry Inquiry works with students to discover what they are passionate about and how that could lead to meaningful employment.
