The Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies program equips individuals with a deep understanding of the Bible, theological synthesis, and hermeneutic practices. It allows students to gain understanding of the value of the major fields of knowledge from a biblical framework, and possess the desire and foundation necessary to be a lifelong learner. Students will attain the skills necessary to minister to people inside and outside of the local church.
This is a distinct program in biblical studies for students who: do not plan to pursue further training, or who plan to pursue a different major at another college or university, or have already had training in another field.
