Program Overview

God reveals himself through his Word and, to a lesser degree, through his world. This program examines the Bible, God’s revealed Word, in broad introductory overviews of the Holy Scriptures (isagogics) as well as in close reading of a particular biblical book (exegetical studies). This program also studies God’s providence in history. In addition, students receive practical training in the application of their studies in ministry to others.

Through participation in, and upon completion of, the Associate of Arts in Theological Studies at Concordia University Wisconsin, students will:

  • Have a greater understanding of God’s Word, the Holy Scriptures
  • Appreciate the value of sound Christian doctrine based squarely on the Bible
  • Develop a heightened awareness of God’s working throughout history
  • Grow in their relationship with Christ and put his teachings into practice in their vocations
  • Employ various methods of delivering and defending biblical truth in a relevant and practical way to diverse groups
  • Demonstrate an understanding of research skills
What to Expect

You can expect to benefit from a well-rounded study of biblical and systematic theology, along with the application of theology in your life within the Christian Church. You’ll be delving into the Old and New Testaments, systematic doctrine, and practical theology (teaching and worship). We offer a lot (seriously, a LOT) of theology electives, so you can explore and grow in the particular areas that interest you.
