The AA degree in Bible & Theology is designed for students who desire a sound biblical foundation upon which to build their life. It is ideal for the student who is not sure what God wishes for their life or for the student who is planning to transfer to another college to pursue studies in an area that we do not offer.

The BA degree teaches leadership skills in basic ministry functions such as personal evangelism, the conduct of discipleship groups, and teaching biblical doctrine. These students will have a strong grasp of the basic doctrines of classical Christian theology, as well as our unique Wesleyan emphases and contributions to its enrichment and development.
