Minor In Apologetics

Learn How to Defend Your Christian Faith with an Apologetics Minor

Apologetics is the study of the truths and history of the Christian faith and the process of defending it with facts and logic. Liberty University’s apologetics minor is designed to help you follow in the footsteps of some of the great Christian apologists like C.S. Lewis, Lee Strobel, and Liberty’s own Dr. Gary Habermas.

When you choose to add a Minor in Apologetics to your online bachelor’s degree, you will have the opportunity to study four apologetics courses and one course in religion. Through these classes, you will learn how to defend your faith by gaining a deeper understanding of the Bible and how to answer common questions and objections of Christianity.
