Cultivate a Deeper Understanding of the Bible with a Minor from the John W. Rawlings School of Divinity
Your minor does not have to be related to your degree, but if it is, that does help to reduce the number of credits you might have to take to graduate. Some minors pair well with any degree, like business or writing, while others are better suited for a specific area of study.
Here are some suggested pairings for minors offered from Liberty University’s John W. Rawlings School of Divinity:
- Apologetics pairs well with the Bachelor of Science in Religion or the Bachelor of Science in Biblical and Educational Studies.
- Biblical studies pairs well with our Bachelor of Science in Religion online degree program.
- Christian ministries pairs well with our online bachelor’s degrees in religion, psychology with a specialization in Christian counseling, or social work.
- Evangelism pairs well with our Bachelor of Science in Religion.
These are just suggestions based on the degree and courses taken, but you have the option to study whatever minor you choose. If you have any questions about which minor might be right for you, call (800) 424-9595 to speak with an admissions counselor.
How Many Minors Can You Have?
Minors can only be added to bachelor’s degrees and may be used to fill in general electives in your degree plan. You can pursue as many minors as you want, but more than 1 minor will likely add to the overall length of your degree plan beyond the normal 120 credit hour format.
Speak with an academic advisor about adding a minor once you begin your online bachelor’s degree.
