The major in Justice and Social Ethics assists students in constructing a biblical framework through which to understand and evaluate how God’s righteousness applies to ethical topics important in personal life, family relationships, the Christian community, and contemporary society. Further, it equips students to engage in culturally relevant and personally meaningful moral discussions from a Judeo-Christian worldview by speaking biblical truth, reflecting God’s justice, and spreading God’s kingdom. 

This degree is designed to provide foundational preparation for students who desire to serve in para-church ministries, denominational service, public policy advocacy, and general moral witness in the culture. Further, in combination with other credentials, this major can be useful to students who desire to serve in fields such as law, politics, journalism, and public education, among other venues in the public square. Additionally, the major in Justice and Social Ethics can give a prophetic edge to students called to pastoral ministry, missionary evangelism, and various forms of chaplaincy.

In addition to the Core Curriculum and Christian Studies Minor , Justice and Social Ethics majors must complete the following:
