2013-2014 Catalog

 

Christian Worship - B.S.

Purpose

The Christian Worship major consists of a program of 44 credit hours. The core set of courses (28 credit hours) is taken in the School of Theology and Ministry; the remaining courses (16 credit hours) are taken within the division related to the student's choice of tracks (area of emphasis). Christian Worship majors choose from four possible tracks: music (Division of Music), theater (Division of Communication and Theatre), media arts (Division of Communication and Theatre) or pastoral (School of Theology and Ministry). This program is designed to prepare a student to serve in a local church or other para-church ministry in worship leadership; it is also an excellent second major to enhance a student's training for other ministries. The completion of this major does not fulfill the educational requirements for ordination in The Wesleyan Church.

General Education Requirements

Students in this major meet the general education requirements by taking the approved standard courses.
