Program Details

Lee University offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Studies for students interested in pursuing a career as a religion teacher or an administrator of a church. The Christian Studies major encompasses a wide variety of courses to ensure adequate understanding of the bible as well as the history of Christianity.

The degree as a whole requires 120 credit hours and is split into six different sections. The first section is the Religion Core. This section consists of 18 credit hours in classes such as: Old Testament Survey, New Testament Survey, Methods of Bible Study (DAL), Introduction to Theology, Introduction to Christian Ethics, and Doctrine of the Holy Spirit.

The second section is the General Education Core. This section is subdivided into six sections: Humanities, Communications, Social Science, Natural Science, Mathematics, and Foreign Language.

 The third section is Specialty Area Requirements. It requires 36 credit hours.

The fourth section is Collateral Requirements. This section requires students to take classes such as: Gospel of John (DAL), Synoptic Gospels, Introduction to Missions, Contemporary World Religions, Religion and Culture, and more.

The fifth section is for General Electives. Students can pick nine credit hours outside the realm of Christian Studies (courses must be approved by the student’s advisor prior to enrollment). 

The first five sections are similar to other degrees offered at Lee; however the last section, Foreign Language, is specific for all Bachelor of Arts degrees. Students are required to take six credit hours of a language (equivalent to two language courses).
