Majors & Programs

We offer 90 majors in 106 areas of study, giving you many options as you follow your dreams, develop your God-given talents, and pursue your goals.

Not sure what you want to study? That’s okay too. Every year, many new students start at Bethel without knowing their major. We’re here to help you make that important decision.

Majors, Minors, and More

Undergraduate Research

We want our students to graduate feeling prepared to make real contributions in their fields, so we place an emphasis on undergraduate research and scholarship. We offer a variety of hands-on research experiences and student/faculty collaborations, giving students the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary for success.

Our Classroom Experience

Our newest classroom space is designed to incorporate technology, media, and student collaboration into the learning experience.

Values-Based General Education Curriculum

Bethel's general education curriculum prepares Christians to thrive in a complex and fast-changing world. Through a program of basic requirements spread out over 4 years, we focus on competencies that allow graduates to adapt—such as technical, communication, relational, and cross-cultural skills. All students learn to reason, to quantify, to compute, to create, to collaborate, and most importantly, to integrate faith with all fields of knowledge.

Meet Your Professors

Our faculty are distinguished scholars and faithful Christians who demonstrate what it means to be both Christ-followers and leaders in their academic fields. As mentors and role models, they play a huge role in the integration of faith and learning at Bethel.
