Anabaptist-Mennonite Studies Minor

If you are interested in the unfolding history of the global Mennonite Church, our Anabaptist-Mennonite studies minor may be right for you! The program is dynamic and evolving as students and professors dig into a complex history that spans from 16th century Europe to modern-day Asia, Africa, South America and beyond.

At GC, you’ll have the chance to study under two of the foremost scholars and writers on Anabaptist history in the world: Professors of History John D. Roth and Steve Nolt. Roth is the creator of the Institute for the Study of Global Anabaptism, while Nolt focuses on research in Amish diversity and identity. The faculty focuses especially on teaching students how the Anabaptist movement is developing in continents outside of Europe and North America.

You’ll also have access to the world’s most comprehensive collections of Mennonite materials in the campus’ Mennonite Historical Library. During a May term course, you could even study Anabaptist history first-hand in Europe or Paraguay, where over 20 different Anabaptist-Mennonite groups have settled.
