Biblical Languages Minor

A Linguistic Understanding of Scripture

A minor in Biblical Languages allows you to stu

A minor in Biblical Languages allows you to study ancient biblical Greek and Hebrew. You will learn to interpret the Scripture’s language, grammar, and syntax within its original linguistic context, and relate and distinguish the differences between the original and modern translations.

This minor culminates with a final course that focuses on the use of Old Testament Hebrew language in the New Testament. Because students pursuing this minor take four semesters of either Greek or Hebrew classes, Biblical Languages minors can count these courses toward the foreign language requirement of any BA degree. Christian Ministries and Biblical Literature majors are encouraged to pursue this minor.
