Special Notes on Major Requirements
Theology majors may take up to nine credits in approved cognate courses in other departments in fulfillment of the Theology electives requirement.
Courses in Classical and Modern Languages and in Philosophy are strongly recommended.
Students considering a major in Theology should take TH-110 and TH-120 in their Freshman year. The Core Philosophy courses should be taken in Sophomore year.
Required Theology electives are taught only every second or third year, so they should be taken as soon as possible after completion of TH-110 and TH-120.
