This program is for those who want an overview of biblical and theological perspectives and want to study within the structure of a program with minimal program requirements. The Bible Certificate is intended for off-campus students only, as all program components can be completed through Continuing and Distance Education.
Students working toward a Bible Certificate must complete their studies within a set time limit, and may go on to earn an Associate or Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies degree, or can use their coursework toward an on-campus program.
