The Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies is designed for students who want a foundation in general studies, a substantial core of Biblical and theological studies, and studies in a Christian service or ministry area. The degree prepares students to be more effective servants and leaders in the local church, or as a preparatory for further undergraduate degrees in a variety of disciplines.
Wherever your life journey leads, a degree in general studies can effectively prepare you. This program helps you to develop your critical thinking skills, hone your communication skills and deepen the Christian values necessary to become an effective servant-leader in your current or future workplace.
