Fall Courses with Prerequisites, Co-requisites, or Recommended Prior Courses

The following courses have prerequites (Pre), co-requisites (Co), or prior recommended courses (Rec). If you lack one of the prerequisites, you will not be able to register for the course in question; if a course is listed as a co-requisite, you must take it prior to or at the same time as the course in question; if you lack a recommended prior course, you will be able to register for the course in question, but you should expect to do additional work.

NOTE: For Biblical Exegesis (BIBL 503), it is beneficial to have at least some knowledge of both Hebrew and Greek. Perspectives on Biblical Languages (LANG 500) will suffice. If, instead, you have taken either Introductory Hebrew or Introductory Greek, you may either audit the relavent half of LANG 500 in the Fall term ($100), or you may study the rudiments of a language on your own by downloading basic study notes from the Academic Advising page.

Newly Admitted to Regent?

Each August, we offer an Introduction to Theological Language class. This course covers basic theological terms and discusses their usage. Though it's primarily for students entering Regent College without a theological background or for those whose first language is not English. All students are welcome to attend. Some of the terms and topics include: Theology, Christology, Pneumatology, Soteriology, Ecclesiology, Eschatology, Trinity, Latin and Greek.

Students can choose one of two tracks: Novice or Advanced. The Novice (beginner) track covers basic terms and allows ample time for questions and discussion. The Advanced track offers a wider breadth of terms, moves at a quick pace, and provides additional optional activities. Each class is two hours long with a one hour optional review after the break. Students are encouraged to choose the track that works best for their schedule and pace of learning.

Check the Events calendar for exact dates and details of when it's being offered next. For more information, email Sherah Bodie: esl@regent-college.edu
