Teaching Christ to all

The Theology Department is responsible for several areas of theological study. The faculty provide the core classes in Bible and Christian Doctrine along with the many theology electives. A third elective Theology course is chosen by students according to their interests and major area of study.

Concordia Theological Journal

Concordia Theological Journal (CTJ), published by Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW) and Concordia University Ann Arbor (CUAA), provides space for interdisciplinary, academic conversation within the tradition of Confessional Lutheranism on pressing problems affecting the church and Christian higher education. We invite you to read previous issues that you’ll find in our archive.

Our Vision

As a school of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), we strive to present the clearest expression of God's Word centered on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus as our Savior as is stated in the Lutheran Confessions. You can expect members of the Theology Department to teach the timeless truth of the Bible with energy and warmth, applying the Gospel message to each student's life. Our faculty have a wide range of experience in church ministry and teaching. CUAA students come from a wide range of religious backgrounds and are encouraged to bring those experiences into the class discussion. Together, professors and students gather around the truth of the Scripture to be shaped by the Gospel of Jesus Christ for lives of faithful service.
