The minor sequence in biblical languages will enable students to develop facilities in reading the Bible in the original Hebrew and Greek. By studying the languages of the biblical authors as part of your theology degree you will learn more than how to decipher and apply your knowledge to the Bible. You will also get up close with ancient religious texts, and develop tools to decipher their many meanings. These tools can then be adapted to a wide range of vocations and careers long after you graduate.
