Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies

Program Details

This relevant and important degree program is for students who seek a college-level introduction to the Bible, basic Christian doctrines and theology, personal spiritual development, a brief overview of other world religions, and principles of leadership in churches and other Christian ministries. As such, the program is good preparation for someone planning to attend graduate school or seminary and becoming a church pastor or a lay leader in a local church. The curriculum utilizes biblical studies as the foundation, and an understanding of theology, philosophy, and Christian history as the framework, for communicating Christ to various audiences. In addition to spiritual formation and exegetical skills essential to Christian studies, graduates will be able to employ communication, leadership, and organizational skills necessary for effective ministry.
