Offered either as Bachelor of Arts of Bachelor of Science degree, the Biblical and Theological Studies major is designed to enable students to have a thorough working knowledge of the Old and New Testaments and Christian Theology. Additionally, the program is designed for students who do not plan to pursue a ministerial ordination, but desire a career in the service of the Church, such as a secondary education Bible teacher. This major can also serve as a pre-seminary program for those who know that they are going to seminary following graduation. (This program does not fulfill the requirements for ordination in The Wesleyan Church)
