The Biblical Literature major in the School of Theology and Ministry at IWU is designed to give students a well-balanced and in-depth look at the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. In addition, the Biblical Literature major features several well-known Bible professors, including Wilbur Williams, Ken Schenck, and Steve Lennox. Students will look forward to experiencing the Greek and Hebrew languages with Elaine Bernius and have the opportunity to gain hands-on archeological experience during the Summer in Israel program with Brian Bernius.
