Are you ready to choose your own adventure? With the Religious Studies major in the College of Theology & Christian Ministry, you can pursue your own unique interests in the study of religion.

Like our Philosophy of Religion program, Religious Studies can prepare you for graduate studies in theology or simply provide a solid liberal arts education that teaches you to write clearly, think critically and communicate effectively. 

After completing required courses in theology, spiritual formation and Christian ethics, as well as a core liberal arts curriculum that is required of every Belmont student, you can chart your own path, choosing from a wide variety of courses in biblical studies, theological/historical studies, religion in society and practical studies classes.

Belmont students, regardless of major, complete the university’s general education BELL Core—taking classes in humanities, social sciences, arts, quantitative reasoning and wellness that together provide a classic liberal arts education. All students in the College of Theology & Christian Ministry also take the same core classes in theology, church history, Christian ethics, spiritual formation and Christian life.
