Worship Leadership majors gain a solid foundation for ministry through music and worship classes, as well as participation in ensembles like the Samford Worship Collective. The curriculum focuses on the principles of Christian worship and ministry, with specialized coursework in one of three concentrations: worship production, songwriting, or ministry.
