Cognate Studies - Worship Ministries

Those seeking a Worship Ministries Major must complete complementary studies outside the department. This requirement will usually be met by completing a minor (15-18 hours) in such areas as Communications, Theater, Art or Music. Cognate studies should be pursued in consultation with the student’s adviser in Worship Ministries.

In the case of those seeking to pursue cognate studies in Music, it is highly recommended that students should complete of the suggested courses of study for a Major in Music, as outlined in the current conservatory handbook. (While several music programs could be pursued, the BA in Music is an example of a program which offers considerable flexibility.) Those not wishing to pursue a Major in Music would need to complete the requirements for the Music Minor plus additional guided academic, ensemble, and applied studies for a minimum of 28 hours of study in the Conservatory.
