Theology

Do you feel called to pursue full-time ministry or Christian studies in a professional manner? Dordt’s theology degree will help you develop the background knowledge you’ll need to dive further into your studies.

You will have the opportunity to pursue emphases in biblical studies, systematics, missions and evangelism, ag missions, and youth ministry. Each one builds on the foundations of biblical foundations, Christian confessions, and Reformed theology.

We are committed to training up God’s people for kingdom work, and believe a degree in theology from Dordt will help you take that next step.

Program Options

Our perspective is biblical, historical, theological, creational, cultural, communal, worshipful, and missional. We offer several emphases and options including:

  • Biblical studies emphasis
  • Systematics emphasis
  • Missions and evangelism emphasis
  • Ag missions, a blend of agriculture and theology courses that enables students called to mission work to minister in a biblical, holistic way by responding to both the spiritual and physical needs of people
  • Youth ministry, a professional program that includes courses in theatre arts, communication, psychology, and leadership
  • Theology minor
