Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college in Indiana

Bible & religion department

The Bible & Religion department aims to provide students with a foundational competence in the Bible, Christian theology and religious thought. Courses in Bible, interpretation methodology, biblical languages, archaeology, world religion, and Christian doctrine are all designed to help students examine and deepen their faith commitments in the service of Jesus Christ and his church.

Two tracks are offered:

A Flexible Degree

Recognizing that effective ministry often requires wide-ranging skills and experiences, and that God's call leads people into diverse professions and vocations, our department encourages students to identify a second major to complement the 30+6 hours required for a major in Bible and Religion. Typical double major combinations include History, English, Philosophy, Psychology, Music, Recreation Management, Theatre, Communication, Business, Missions, Youth Ministries, and others.

Experience Counts

Bible and Religion majors may acquire experience in leading others in the interpretation of the Bible through preaching, teaching assignments or leading Bible studies. Take a look at Huntington's internship programs.

Students also have the opportunity to study in Israel at the Jerusalem University College during their junior or senior year as well as travel on other study trips with faculty.
