Program Overview

Liberty University’s Undergraduate Certificate in Biblical Studies is designed for students that would like to strengthen their biblical knowledge but cannot devote the time required for a full-time degree. Courses will provide students an in-depth biblical education while also focusing on it’s interpretation and doctrine. The curriculum also helps students develop their effectiveness in ministry, evangelism, and discipleship. Students that are interested in advancing their education may apply their completed certificate credits towards a degree at Liberty University.

Students will need to complete 18 credit hours to graduate. The credits are completed through a designated list of six courses. Some of the required courses are New Testament Survey, Theology Survey I, and Fundamental Theological Issues. At $340 per full-time credit hour, the total cost for tuition as a full-time student will be $6120.

The program requires that all of the certificate’s courses be completed at Liberty University.  To graduate, students must earn cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Course letter grades of “D” or lower will not be used towards the fulfillment of certificate requirements.  

Students will learn within a variety of biblical and theology subjects during their study. Some course topics include important people within the New Testament, key chapters within the Old Testament, angelology, and ecclesiology.  Students should gain experience with skills such as interpreting Scripture, outlining the major areas of systemic theology, and evaluating the defense of creationism. The curriculum will also provide opportunities for students to analyze contemporary ministry topics such as ethics and feminism.
