Religion - Major
At Schreiner, the study of religion is a "humanity,'' and therefore understands itself to be open to and the beneficiary of other realms of knowledge described in the curriculum. It is expected that students who major in religion will take advantage of elective hours to explore a broad spectrum of courses that will enrich their lives and prepare them for occupations and vocations in a wide variety of human endeavors. In order to nurture Christian discipleship among Schreiner University students, to respond to students' needs, to provide "whole-person'' educational opportunities, and to encourage service to the Church, the Christian Vocations Intern Program (CVIP) has implemented an experiential, field-oriented, learning and serving program under the supervision of trained mentors and teachers. The CVIP is dedicated to providing the opportunity for students to integrate their faith and academic learning by using both in practical settings to prepare themselves to be Christian leaders throughout their lives and to consider the possibility of a call to service in the church. Students must take a minimum of 12 semester hours in the field of religion including Old and New Testament. In addition, a minimum of 6 semester hours in either education, psychology, or business are required in order to enroll in the internship course during the senior year. Students will be given individualized assistance in planning their course options during their time at Schreiner University. Extra-curricular opportunities will be offered to enhance the students' study and growth towards a vocational choice.
