Both the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree coursework combine a Bible & Theology Core and an Arts & Sciences Core. Bachelor of Arts degrees usually include 12 or more credits of foreign language study, while Bachelor of Science degrees include additional Natural Science (like Biology and Science Concepts) and Social and Behavioral Science courses (like Psychology and Economics). Students also apply their theoretical knowledge in real-world settings through professional internships.

When students complete this program, they will be able to do the following:

  • Articulate biblical, theological, and missiological foundations for their chosen ministry field.
  • Implement missional ministry within world contexts.
  • Pursue Christian formational growth conducive to cross-cultural ministry.
