Students planning on entering seminary will find in a Jessup history major a suitable course of study as well – particularly when considered along with the Bible and theology classes required of all students.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The History major at Jessup is unique in that it not only reflects a traditional history curriculum found in the best Liberal Arts institutions but also requires several courses offered by the English and Public Policy departments. Consequently, this makes for a stronger, better-rounded major. Reflecting Jessup’s deep roots in Evangelical Christianity, a required course in the History of the Renaissance and Reformation, as well as electives such as American Religious History and Early Church History, add a further unique flavor to the program. Concentrations in American History, Classical Studies, and Church History allow students to specialize in a variety of historical fields and time periods.
The study of history gives our students broad sympathy for the best of humanity’s God-given capacity to create culture and society — and an understanding of humanity’s oft-times failure to do so in a positive way. – Rex Gurney
