School:Briercrest College
Faculty:Briercrest College - Christian Ministry
Field of Study:Christian Studies
Description:The BA Christianity and Culture is for students who want to understand the profound ways that Christianity has shaped and been shaped by culture throughout its history. A deep awareness of this relationship is vital for understanding contemporary, multicultural societies like Canada. In order to prepare students to engage in current society and culture wisely, this degree draws students into a wide range of subjects and disciplines. Students will examine the relationship between Christianity and culture from multiple vantage points—history, philosophy, the social sciences, religious studies and cultural theory. As well, students will receive a thorough education in advanced biblical and theological studies so that they know the depth of the Christian tradition. This sort of preparation provides a unique foundation from which they might go on into careers within the Church, the marketplace, or the not-for-profit sector in various capacities. The BA Christianity and Culture also serves as excellent preparation for graduate school in fields such as religious studies or as a foundation for seminary education.

The BA Christianity and Culture requires 57 credit hours of major requirements with a minimum of 30 hours at the 300+ level. For students considering further study, we strongly recommend that they study a second language, either biblical or modern.
