Biblical Studies in Undergraduate Education Working Group
Return to SBL Committee Page

Biblical Studies in Undergraduate Education (BSUE) is a working group established to help SBL and its members understand and respond constructively to both immediate and longer-term challenges and opportunities facing the field of biblical studies in the context of undergraduate liberal arts teaching. While the initial focus of the working group is post-secondary education in the North America, it will consider ways to broaden its scope. BSUE will act as a de facto program unit, planning Annual and International Meeting sessions, panels, and workshops, as well as scheduling listening sessions and working meetings throughout the year.

Among its activities, the BSUE will develop strategies to advocate for biblical studies within the larger field of religious studies and the humanities; design and routinize data-collection tools to survey the field; propose suggestions for undergraduate and graduate curricular design that are responsive to the significant pressures undergraduate education is facing; and envision next steps for the field of biblical studies in higher education and in relation to other professional and public contexts.
