can theology be a college major?

Indeed it can.

Yes, but you might as well be studying English then. With an English major, at least you'll get to study more than fictional works.

I think theology is usually a graduate major. I say go for it, if you're interested. You can stand to learn a ton, if you're open minded.

Of course they do - how do you think people become theologists?

Usually priests have to do a theology degree of some kind, or at least they wind up doing one.

theology is in its own right a form of philosphy and as such is not necessarily static in only belonging to religous fanatics. it is studying if a god or gods existed and in what form, how would they act, what actions would they be limited to, if any, and would the entire idea be logicaly possible. It is a bunch of clauses and ifs.

and yet people look down at it as if it is some atrocious concept. not necessarily you guys replying now, but generally. It is nothing more than a focused picture of philosphy.
