Texas Lutheran University’s theology degree program is combined with the philosophy and classical languages departments in order to create a holistic approach to the discipline. Theology majors can choose to follow a classic liberal arts path or to specialize in pre-seminary or youth ministry studies. A minor in theology is also available to students pursuing other degrees. Texas Lutheran University strives to create an approach to theology that is academically challenging, highly inquisitive, and deeply introspective.
An annual academic forum and symposium run by the TLU Honors program and the Alpha Chi Honor Society gives further opportunity for recognition by students’ peers and the theology community at large. Students may also join service and social organizations on campus dedicated to community outreach and dialogue. Students are encouraged to participate in departmental meetings, review of classes and lectures by visiting guest philosophers.
