What makes an OBU Interdisciplinary College of Theology and Ministry degree special?
This degree is a triple minor, allowing you to explore three academic areas. All three minors could be from the College of Theology and Ministry, but one or two could be from other academic programs. If you have a specific career or ministry goal that requires multiple kinds of academic preparation, this degree might be right for you. Or if you want to explore three areas without doing a full major in any of them, this major can help you as well.
