Portfolio requirement

In your senior year as a theology major, you will submit a portfolio showcasing your writing and work to the department. You will work with your adviser to complete this process.

Writing requirements

Theology majors fulfill the Writing Requirement for Majors by taking any one of the 3000-level theology courses that are designated as writing intensive. You complete the Liberal Arts and Sciences Core Writing Requirement with three other writing-intensive courses (CORE 1000: The Reflective Woman and CORE 3990: Global Search for Justice, and any other writing-intensive course in this or another department).
