The Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and Biblical Studies is designed to equip students to understand and engage the cultural climate of our day. The degree accomplishes this by introducing the student to the history and development of Western thought, which shapes the culture. All students take a 60-hour core in History, Life and Thought that integrates class lectures with small-group breakout sessions along with readings in primary and secondary literature of the period. This degree program also requires all students to complete a 24-hour course of study in Bible and theology with opportunities for focused research in those disciplines. Graduates of the College will be uniquely prepared to address the culture from a sound Biblical worldview.
