Liberal Arts Degree
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
The Liberal Arts bachelor’s degree program offers one of the most flexible degree options with career opportunities in business, public service, and ministry. Graduates are also qualified to pursue additional academic degrees at the master’s level.
Our liberal arts major provides our Minnesota student body with an interdisciplinary curriculum. We cover multiple fields of study and, at the same time, provide our students with a deeper understanding of the Bible and a Christian worldview.
