The Associates of Arts or Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies prepares students for ministry within the context of culture and the church. Our classes in Theology, Applied Theology, and Bible Studies allow students to engage in direct study of the Bible. The knowledge you gain in this program will help you develop a ministry that will impact and shape the people you serve. At the end of the program, you will develop an intensive knowledge of scriptural content. You will understand hermeneutical principles and be able to defend your faith against scientism, historical criticism, philosophy, cults, and non-Christian religions.
