Bible Associate of Arts Program
The two year Associate of Arts in Bible is designed for those who desire a strong foundation in God’s Word. The need for biblically trained leaders in the church and world is intensified by our culture’s increasing biblical illiteracy. An Associate of Arts in Bible equips students for Christian leadership who may pursue future degrees from secular institutions. This fully accredited degree allows a student to lock in an Associate degree that can later be built upon in pursuing a Bachelor degree and career in any field.
Biblical and Theological Studies Department
The majors of the Biblical and Theological Studies Department combine a strong biblical and theological foundation with a minor that serves the educational and vocational interests of the student. They may be selected as pre-seminary degrees or as preparation for graduate studies in a variety of related fields such as biblical studies, intercultural studies, missions, religion, religious education, institutional chaplaincy, and theology. The minor chosen may be any standard offering or custom designed according to the student’s special needs, interests, or vocational goals. The minor in Pastoral Leadership might be of particular interest to those who wish to engage in ministry before entering seminary.

* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of general electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 63 credits is reached.
