MDiv- Church History

Church history is an integral part of the curriculum at Cincinnati Bible Seminary. Each degree program offers some church history, enabling students to have a sense of how the church has developed over the centuries. Students have the opportunity not only to learn about the historical development of the church but also to study how doctrinal and theological teachings developed within the various
religious traditions. In addition to learning church history within each of the degree programs, students may choose to concentrate their studies in the field of church history.
Students who satisfactorily complete the requirements for the concentration in Church History will be able to:

  • Communicate a knowledge and understanding of the history of the church.
  • Demonstrate an awareness of the major influences that have shaped Christianity in the present.
  • Develop the ability to think critically about the perspectives of various historians and their presuppositions.
  • Complete graduate level research and writing in the field of church history.
