Theology

An Active Conversation on Today’s Religious Questions

Concordia’s bachelor’s degree in theology leads students through an engaging and broad academic exploration of Christian history, Biblical languages and traditions, world religions, and the key religious questions of the day. While remaining faithful to its tradition as a Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod University, theology faculty facilitate open conversations on issues in science, society, and religion, preparing graduates for service locally and abroad. Such broad-based theological studies give Concordia graduates a unique perspective and prepares them for graduate school, seminary training, missionary work, pastoral ministry, and work with government and non-government service agencies.

Why Concordia?

In courses such as Early Christian Thought, World Religions, and religion and science seminars, students learn how to decipher the past in order to better understand religion-focused issues of today. Concordia’s mission of servant leadership is woven throughout the theology program.

“The theological education I received at Concordia University truly showed me how to love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. I received more than just an education; I was trained in the way of the great theologians who came before and was 'discipled' in the way of Jesus Christ”  – Robert Bernadelli ’11
