Bachelor of Arts in Theology (B.A.)

Program Options: Major, Minor, Dual Degree

The bachelor's degree in Theology at Colorado Christian University builds a biblical and theological foundation essential for students who feel called to vocational ministry and/or graduate study. Offered through the School of Theology, the Theology major is designed to help you think deeply about faith within a community of Christian professors and students.

Students who major in Theology become perceptive, critical readers of the biblical text and of theological literature. They are able to interpret the Bible for themselves and for others confidently.

Because all Christians benefit from an informed theological education, even if you're entering another professional field, you can benefit from a major in Theology. The degree also provides a foundation for seminary or graduate studies and the Theology minor is helpful for various entry-level ministry, missions, education, and social service opportunities.


The dual degree option allows you to earn a Bachelor of Arts Theology while completing some of the coursework toward CCU's Master of Arts in Theology, saving you time and money when you enroll in a graduate program. Learn more about CCU's dual degree programs.

About the School of Theology

The School of Theology is committed to cultivating the minds of students who have godly character and who demonstrate both thoughtfulness and maturity. Our desire is unique among theology schools in Colorado: to come alongside students to offer encouragement, direction, and support as they become a well-founded evangelical scholar. Students participate in rigorous academic programs that offer a variety of viewpoints within Christianity and lead to an intelligent commitment to the gospel.

Scholarship itself is ministry to the church and is for service to the church. It fosters an environment where students learn to respect various Christian perspectives, develop an informed faith commitment, and avoid simplistic answers to complex questions. Through experienced faculty, theology students receive a thorough grounding in the primary sources of their fields, and critically engage with the best scholarship research and study in the 21st century.
