Majors

Christian Studies

Our Christian Studies BA program is designed to prepare you for a variety of service opportunities in the local church or parachurch ministries.

The Christian Studies Department offers a BA in Christian Studies with three options: Bible, Christian Ministry, and Philosophy & Culture. This BA is a 36 hour major designed to give a student a broad-based, general college education with a general concentration in one of three areas of Christian Studies. All Christian Studies students share the same curriculum for the first year, and all BA students in Christian Studies have a single Senior Seminar which is jointly led by professors from each respective option.

Our faculty are committed to one-on-one discipleship and a quality of education that will lead themselves and their students to a greater love for God and for other people.

Philosophy & Culture Option
This option fits well into the historical milieu and the worldview emphasis of Bryan College. It is intended to be a broad-based program incorporating multiple departments, including philosophy, languages, theology, English, history, and literature so that a student gets a wide—ranging exposure to both secular and Christian thought in these arenas.
