Two programs are available, including the 60-credit Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies and the 120-credit Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies.
The program in Biblical Studies prepares students for service in church and parachurch ministries, the mission field, and graduate studies. Students will prepare for vocational Christian ministry by developing a foundational knowledge of the Bible and theology, ministry principles and practices, and by nurturing the personal character necessary for a life of service to Jesus Christ.
Bible and Theology
Grace Christian University believes in biblical higher education. Recognizing that God is the source of all truth, we seek to teach every subject in light of the truths of Scripture. This is especially true of our courses in Bible and theology. At Grace, you will learn about the Bible and the Christian life as well as have opportunities to learn practical skills such as witnessing and teaching the Word of God. All associate degrees have 12 or more credit hours of Bible and theology.
