These core requirements are the basic guidelines for most majors although specific programs will have more detailed requirements. Students should check their degree audits for the complete listing of core requirements for their specific programs.

Religion Core (13)
These courses must be taken in sequence as listed below, with the exception of BIBL-110/BIBL-111, either of which may be taken first or second.
Each unit represents approximately 10 hours of Christian service
(Transfer students will complete one service unit per semester; visit Leonard Center for more information.)

An integrative capstone course in the major or a religion elective chosen by the student’s major department
Each full-time student must be enrolled in a religion course every semester until the completion of THEO 231 in the above sequence.
