Certificate in Biblical Studies
Barclay College

Program Details

The online Certificate in Biblical Studies provides additional knowledge in the Bible, methods of Biblical interpretation, and a history of the Bible.  Students are able to choose the eight classes that they wish to take in the Certification, allowing a great deal of flexibility in the curriculum so the courses meet their goals and interests.  At least five of the eight courses must be from the online Biblical Studies Core, but the student gets to choose which courses to take to meet the requirements.  You will gain a working knowledge of the Bible and essential Christian doctrine, learn to accurately interpret Scripture, and gain an increasingly coherent Christian worldview that enables you to apply biblical principles to questions of ethics, compassion, and life situations.  Graduates have the skills and understanding needed for personal Bible-study, prayer, and devotional life which can sustain and empower their own lives and provide ministry to others.
