Biblical Studies & Christian Ministry Department

The Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry Department at Regent University is uniquely positioned to prepare students for thoughtful, Christian engagement in the 21st century world through an extensive range of classes in theology, biblical studies, practical ministry and other aspects of religious thought and practice. The Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious Studies is carefully designed to help students develop and grow intellectually, personally, and spiritually as they seek to follow God’s call in their lives. It opens up a number of opportunities for students. The degree provides a strong foundation for students who want to pursue further studies in graduate school (for example: law, journalism, government, religion, etc.) or seminary. It also is well-suited for those wanting to move directly into ministry, a service organization, or another organization in which critical thinking and creative leadership grounded in a biblical worldview is required. Religious Studies majors at Regent University find that they are well-prepared for the next step in their ongoing quest to live as Christian leaders who change the world.
