Program Information

School:Briercrest College
Faculty:Briercrest College - Bible and Theology
Field of Study:Theology/Theological Studies
Description:This program is designed to guide students into the rich and complex heritage of Christian belief and practice. By more deeply understanding the intricacies of the Christian tradition, students will be better able to interpret it within contemporary culture and to appreciate the complex traditions of others. An important component of this involves the careful use of the Christian Scriptures, and so all BA Theology students gain competency in the study of a biblical language. Students also gain skills to think and write clearly as they analyze sophisticated theological ideas. Since a high priority in the program is placed on robust dialogue and discussion, students learn important relational and communication skills.

Finally, since theological ideas shape living and character, students are pushed to become competent and effective leaders in whatever context they find themselves. This program offers broad preparation for a variety of careers. The BA Theology also offers an excellent foundation for graduate studies in fields such as theology, religious studies, and pastoral ministry.
