Professional Directed Studies
Calvary University offers male students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor degree in Professional Directed Services. The interdisciplinary degree program is designed for students interested in an area of study that is not specifically offered as a major at the College.
Students must be able to transfer at least 30 credit hours in one area of concentration from another accredited learning institution. The transferred credit hour will be the courses used as a minor at Calvary Baptist; students have the option of completing another area of study through several courses to satisfy the 126 credit hour minimum to graduate. It is the student’s responsibility to verify with both the transferring school and the receiving school which credits can count towards the Bachelor program at Calvary.
Earning a Professional Directed Services degree may allow students to follow personal and professional aspirations, while still obtaining a solid foundation of Bible knowledge. Successful graduates should be able to communicate biblical information in an effective manner to individuals in the church or other establishments.
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 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.
