The Curriculum

Seaver College's minor in faith and vocation enables students to apply spiritual and theological discernment to a critical facet of their lives by exploring their chosen career through the lens of vocation (calling). To minor in faith and vocation, students must take five upper-division courses beyond the general education requirements in religion. The two core courses students must take explore theological principles that define a Christian's view of work and service.
