About this program

Bachelor of Arts in Theological Studies

Students in Theological Studies explore religious movements and ideas, along with the ways in which these shape our world. They discuss ancient and modern texts, watch movies, pursue creative projects, write autobiographies, or even tour Italy. In our classes, you will be invited to explore questions about the nature of ritual, the importance of myths, the problem of suffering, the well-being of animals and the environment, and the relationships among the multiple humanistic and religious traditions of the world. Perhaps most importantly, you will be invited to decide for yourself the meaning and purpose of your life, and you will be challenged to figure out how human beings can best live together for the good of all.

Why study at Hanover College

Hanover College gives students the best of all worlds. There are renowned professors at the top of their discipline, but classes small enough to get 1:1 interaction and mentoring from those professors.

We are located in a small midwestern area near one of Indiana's most historic small towns (Madison, IN), but less than an hour away from some of the largest and most touristic cities of the Midwest.

We have a one-of-a-kind naturally beautiful campus with over 600 acres of space, hiking trails, over 30 waterfalls, and endless hammocking spots. Hanover is also Indiana's first and oldest private, liberal arts, college. Hanover is also a global institution with about 18 different international partner universities and a variety of study abroad options to participate in during your 4 years here.
