Biblical and Religious Studies

The Department of Bible, Religion and Philosophy offers bachelor’s degrees in Biblical & Religious Studies and Christian Ministry (with concentrations in Christian Leadership, Youth Ministry and Mission). The Department also offers minors in Mission, Youth Ministry, Christian Leadership, and Philosophy. Courses are designed to introduce students to vital contemporary issues of faith and reason, and to equip them for Christian service.

In addition to classroom work, Tabor works closely with regional churches to provide students with mentored ministry opportunities. The two majors and the spectrum of courses allow students to tailor their study to meet specific vocational and educational goals.

The Biblical and Religious Studies major is designed to help students be informed and effective disciples of Jesus Christ in today’s world. It is extremely flexible, allowing students to take advantage of the wide variety of courses offered by the department. Since many credit hours overlap with Tabor’s core curriculum requirements, the major easily serves as a second major for those pursuing vocations in another field of study.
