Program Details

The biblical studies certificate is offered in conjunction with the advanced studies certificate and can be obtained after earning 16 credit hours through class auditing degree completion.  Students who choose to audit classes are expected to participate in class discussion, feedback and respect start and end times, but the completion of assignments by teachers is not required.  Those students who earn an additional 14 credits through the enrichment courses will have satisfied the requirements for the Advanced Certificate.   The graduates from the advanced certificate program will have earned a degree in Biblical Enrichment.  This program is delivered in an on-line format for easier accessibility.

The Advanced Biblical Studies Certificate will transfer to a Bachelors degree as 10 credits (five for bible/theology and five for general electives) and the basic biblical studies certificate will transfer over as five credits (bible/theology).  The tuition to sit and audit each course is $240, plus a $35 fee each term.


Students must be at least 25 years old or demonstrate maturity.
