Bible Degree (A.A.)

Bible Associate of Arts (A.A.)

Degree Overview

Crown’s two-year Bible Studies associate degree program was designed for students who wish to obtain a strong foundation in God’s Word before deciding on a major. The fully accredited degree program prepares and equips students for Christian leadership, which they can build on with a bachelor’s degree and career in any field.

Students obtain a thorough education in Bible and theology through a curriculum taught by professors who are pastors, as well as renowned biblical scholars. Graduates of the Associate of Arts in Bible Studies (A.A) from our Minnesota campus are biblically trained leaders ready to serve the church more effectively or continue their education in their selected field.
