Study Christianity & Contemporary Culture at The King's University
What does it mean to be a Christian in today's culture? Is Christianity—the religion—still important, or is it enough to simply believe in God and live a good life?
The Christianity and Contemporary Culture minor explores these ideas and more as it seeks to place the Christian religion within its larger context. Studying subjects in theology, philosophy and history offers students a better understanding of how Christianity has slowly evolved and changed over the the centuries. Topics in world religions, contemporary theology and Christian social and political movements explore how Christians engage with, and are understood by, the world around them.
The Christianity and Contemporary Culture minor is an excellent choice for students looking to enter ministry or Christian non-profit work upon graduation, but it is also an excellent program for any student looking to better understand the role Christianity plays in our world and what being a Christian ought to look and feel like today.
