Youth/Social Ministry Major (B.S.)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments

The mission of this major is to equip men and women to enter non-traditional ministry roles in cities, campuses, prisons, group homes, etc. in order to holistically win and disciple the poor, hurting, and hungry.

Program Requirements


I. Christian Studies - 30 Credits


II. General Education - 38 Credits


IV. Electives - 10 Credits *


At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level. If you choose to take lower-level Christian Studies core classes (CHM 201 or CHM 210), then you must take enough upper-level general electives to meet this requirement.

Total - 125 Credits


1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.

2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.

4 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328  and COM 446  also qualify as fine arts electives. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)

* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.
