|Description:||The Biblical Studies degree engages you in rigorous in-depth study of Scripture, its major theological themes, biblical history, and scriptural context. The program is designed to teach biblical Hebrew and Greek, as well as advanced methods of Biblical interpretation. This major empowers you to be an effective, faithful reader, expositor, and interpreter of Scripture. Our program offers the opportunity to learn both biblical languages. Greek and Hebrew give you a better understanding of the Old and New Testament as a whole. Biblical Interpretation, Elementary Greek and Hebrew, and Greek and Hebrew Exegesis courses provide a solid foundation for church ministry or for pursuing a future postgraduate degree in biblical studies.
You will gain practical training through internship programs for hands-on ministry experience. You may have the option of working as a Research Assistant or writing a master’s thesis in order to strengthen research, writing, and analytical skills. Upon completion of the degree you will be able to work in church settings or pursue post-graduate studies.
