The Undergraduate Concentration in Christian Ministry
The concentration in Christian Ministry upholds the goals and values of Mary McLeod Bethune as recently restated by the University: faith, integrity, service, respect, and thirst for knowledge. Dr. Bethune initiated religious education in the wider community and on the campus of B-CU. Courses in African- American religious thought and experience, social justice and ecumenism provide a foundation for ministry that has great historical significance in the African-American church. Courses in preaching, pastoral care and practical theology provide application of these principles.
After earning your degree with this concentration, you will be ready to begin a religious career whether your plans include preaching, church ministry, campus ministry, Christian education, missionary work, evangelism, or work with non-profit Christian organizations. This degree also prepares you to pursue graduate education for a specialized degree in areas such as a law, politics, public policy, Master of Divinity degree, Master of Theology degree, a Master of Religious Studies, Master of Biblical Studies, etc.
