Bible and Religion
Prepare for Christian service and gain biblical knowledge through Erskine’s Bible and Religion major. You may also wish to consider Erskine’s Accelerated Ministry Program if you plan to continue your studies in seminary. This program allows you to complete both a four-year bachelor’s degree and a three-year Master of Divinity degree in just five years.
You can choose between two tracks within the Bible and Religion major, depending on your academic and career interests. The Christian Education track prepares you to teach Bible and religion in schools and churches. The Biblical and Theological Studies track focuses on academic mastery of the Bible and theology, building a foundation for Christian ministry and academic careers and preparing you for seminary or graduate school.
In both tracks you will discuss key issues of faith and ethics. All majors complete course requirements in the Christian scriptures, theology and the Christian tradition, comparative religion, and Christianity in relation to other religions and the secular worldview. Students in the Christian Education track will also complete four courses in Christian ministry.
