Associate of Arts

Woman reading Bible in field

Overview

The Associate of Arts in Bible is designed for those who want a two-year course of study. It is suited for those who need training in the Word of God, whether spouses of students who are in degree programs, members of area churches who want to enhance their present ministries, or mission workers who need to add Bible to their existing professional expertise. This program is not a substitute for a four-year program, but is designed to lead directly into such a program.

The program offers the equivalent of a semester of general education but concentrates on Bible and Bible-related subjects. This program can be completed in two years of full-time or four years of part-time study, and is available online.
