Home / Academics / Division of Religion & Philosophy / Overview


The Division of Religion and Philosophy offers two major degree programs for those called into the ministry: the Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies and the Bachelor of Ministry. Both degrees offer numerous classes in Old and New Testament studies and also emphasize a broad foundation for ministry with courses in theology, apologetics, church history, world religion, philosophy, and ethics.

The Christian Studies Major requires a foreign language (we offer Greek and Hebrew) and a senior research seminar. The Ministry Major emphasizes practical ministry with courses in spiritual formation, pastoral care, preaching, and ministry internship. The internship course focuses upon church administration and incorporates elements from the other areas of study.

We also offer a Christian Studies Minor for those desiring to strengthen their knowledge of biblical and theological-historical studies while majoring in another field such as Music. The Philosophy Minor enables students an opportunity to sharpen their analytical skills while gaining a greater understanding of the relationship between philosophy and religion. Whatever degree or minor you choose, our classes are personal and committed to academic excellence.

All of our ministry programs prepare students for entry into local church ministry upon graduation. In fact, many of our students begin serving in local churches while attending college. The Ministerial Association, Baptist Student Union, and other Christian organizations provide ample opportunity for our students to gain valuable ministry and leadership experience. Georgia is dotted with churches whose ministers received their basic ministerial education from Brewton-Parker College.

Our ministerial programs also provide thorough preparation for further study at the seminary level. Our curriculum emphasizes the same areas of theological education that seminaries stress: biblical, theological-historical, and practical ministry studies. Our students have attended a variety of excellent schools: Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Mid-America Theological Seminary, and a host of others.

The Division of Religion & Philosophy is committed to preparing future ministers for church-related vocations, and the College is committed to supporting the education of its ministerial students through generous scholarships. If God is calling you into ministry, we want to work with you, help you to define your sense of calling, and equip you to become the type of minister who "does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15). We'd like to hear from you. Please contact one of our faculty members or click here to request further information.
