Theology Major

Christ College

The exploration of Christian Theology equips you to better understand this world, its Creator, and the people who live in it. As a Theology major at Concordia University Irvine, you will delve into a well-rounded study of the nature of God as He is revealed in the Scriptures, along with the subdisciplines of biblical interpretation, doctrine, comparative religions, church history, and applied theology. Through this intellectual foundation in various kinds of inquiry, you are prepared for further study in a variety of fields and for a more informed interaction with the world.

As a student in Christ College, you will learn how to understand, communicate, teach, defend, and believe the Christian faith through systematic inquiry of the Bible, the doctrines of the church, and other statements of faith.

All of your Theology professors are scholars and called ministers who are actively involved in ministry today. They are also published authors, contributing to world-wide biblical scholarship and serving Southern California’s diverse Christian communities in Bible study and devotion. Here you will be equipped to make disciples of all nations.
