Sec 15: School of Theological Studies
Theological Studies Overview
Biblical scholars in the School of Theological Studies provide courses that lay a biblical foundation to the rest of the curriculum at Missional University. In addition to reading the text missionally, faculty create “theology of” courses that integrate every degree program with biblical themes. Students in Theological Studies learn how to apply scripture to various contexts in post-Christian societies. The School of Theological Studies offers degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate level.
