Calvary University offers students the opportunity to earn an Associate degree with a concentration in Biblical Studies. Students earning the degree will focus on teaching the Bible with the solid conviction and understanding of the scripture. The Biblical Studies concentration is available to students who wish to immediately enter the service or who wish to pursue a Bachelor degree.
Unlike elementary and secondary teaching degree programs that emphasize curriculum and methodology, the Biblical Studies program specializes on how to teach the scripture. The 66 credit hour Associate program introduces students to the necessary coursework needed to understand and effectively apply biblical content. Students will partake in a curriculum designed for spreading the Word of God in many different environments. The core Biblical Studies courses cover topics of interest such as: Survey of Old Testament Literature, Survey New Testament Literature, and Bible Study/Hermeneutics.
Students must also complete the general education courses in mathematics, literature, social and natural sciences, history, humanities and the fine arts. Successful students should be able to accurately use hermeneutics when analyzing, interpreting and applying ministry leadership in many professions.
Graduates should consistently demonstrate growth in their Christian character throughout the program and enrollment at the College. Successful students, upon graduation, may use the formal education when seeking musical careers communicating the scriptural truths in an accurate and effective manner to individuals in need. Graduates must also be able to perform the many responsibilities of pastoral care with practical skills.

Three separate Bible institutes for higher learning were founded in Kansas City, Kansas, Salina, Kansas, and Ozark, Arkansas, during the first part of the twentieth century. Each progressed forward, establishing baccalaureate programs. Then mergers began, and by 1987 the three schools transitioned into a single Calvary Bible College, located in Kansas City. During this same period, Calvary Theological Seminary began operating as a branch of the College. When the other three campuses merged in 1992, Calvary Theological Seminary established a separate institution. At first, both Calvary Bible College and Calvary Theological Seminary operated as two individual schools, but in 2016, the institutions merged and rebranded as Calvary University.
Calvary University is a private, not-for-profit, non-denominational institution based on Christian principals. The university awards associate’s, bachelor’s, and master's degrees, along with certificates. Calvary University also provides a non-traditional format for added flexibility, including all online degrees.
