Notes:


  1. Core Requirements: All students are required to take two courses in theology: Introduction to Theology (TH 201 ), followed by a second theology core course (TH 202-299). Honors Program students may take an upper-level theology seminar (TH 320 and above) after completing HN 201  or HN 202  and HN 210  or WR 100 .
  2. TH 201  is the prerequisite for all courses TH 200- level and above.
  3. Ethics Core Requirement: Each student must take one course in ethics or Christian ethics, preferably in junior or senior year. This course may be elected from those offered by the Philosophy (PL 300-319) or Theology Departments (TH 300-319). Organically related to TH 201 , the ethics courses offered by the Theology Department focus on the crucial struggle of our time: the struggle for faith and that struggle for justice which it includes.
  4. Students must complete the diversity core requirement through a designated diversity core, major, or elective course (see Diversity Core Requirement  under Curriculum and Policies).
