Grand Canyon University, GCU, has renamed its College of Christian Studies as the College of Theology. The new name follows on the heels of a 25% reduction in tuition for online students pursuing a bachelor’s degree from the newly christened College of Theology.
In a written statement Steve Gerali, dean of the College of Theology, said that the name change was to help distinguish the school as one that focuses on “training and equipping church and ministry leaders with the highest theological scholarship and praxis.” He went on to state that the name change was also designed to take into account the organizational needs, in both the secular and faith-based communities, for professionals trained to work with youth.
The GCU College of Theology offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in Christian Studies with emphases in Christian Leadership, Pastoral Ministry, Youth Ministry and Biblical Studies. GCU also offers bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees in business, nursing, arts and sciences, fine art and production, and education.
