Program Overview

Develop a solid foundation in doctrine with an in-depth study of the four main areas of theology: biblical studies, doctrine, church history, and practical application. Taught by our expert faculty within the Lutheran church, you will receive your Theological Studies degree from a robustly Lutheran standpoint. Take a deep dive into both the Old and New Testaments and the lessons God instills in us by his Word. 

Concordia's Bachelor's in Theological Studies was created with the student's interests in mind. With eight-week online courses, students are able to experience both collaborative and self-paced formats  throughout the program. This flexibility allows students to experience both modalities and accommodate a busy lifestyle.

Our program offers real-life application with the opportunities to talk one-on-one with faculty about circumstances happening in your life and what God might be trying to show you through it all. Our faculty will help you apply the Gospel and God's forgiveness to your life that will help you with your walk with him. Students will have the chance to receive practical training as they apply what they are learning in service to others.

Hear from our faculty:

What to Expect

Through the Word of Jesus Christ, God reveals himself to us and the directions he has for our lives.  Our faculty will delve into the promises that God has given us about hope, forgiveness, and eternal life. You will learn how to use those promises given by him to lead Godly lives and spread the word of his love to those around you.

Wondering where this degree can take you?

Our Theological Studies degree will prepare you to enter a range of opportunities after graduation. Whether that means going into church work, teaching future generations, or wanting to go on to do seminary studies, we have a path for you to take.


By the end of your time in our Theological Studies program, you will be prepared to apply for seminary studies if you believe you are being called by God to enter the ministry. 

Church work
