New Testament Language and Literature Minor

August 25th, 2017

The Department of Religious Studies & Classics is launching a new undergraduate minor in New Testament Language and Literature. More information can be found at In this minor, students learn to read New Testament texts in their original language (ancient Greek), and study New Testament texts in their historical contexts.

Students interested in pursuing this minor should contact Professor Courtney Friesen. Dr. Friesen specializes in New Testament Studies, Early Christianity, and ancient Greek language and literature, and he serves as the faculty advisor for this minor.

The Greek language courses required for the minor fulfill University of Arizona language requirements as well as language requirements for the Classics major.
