Biblical and Theological Studies

Ideas have consequences.

Graduates of OKWU’s Biblical and Theological studies programs are uniquely placed to engage in profound thinking at universities, in political arenas, and in other areas of influence – all with a solid foundation on the Word of God.

Unlike other, career-specific majors, our Biblical and Theological Studies program prepares students for a variety of careers. The goal for graduates of our program is not to master the Bible, but rather to be mastered by the Bible, to be effective servants of God in any career they pursue. Our majors go on to be missionaries, program directors, professors, and theologians.

Deep thinkers. Servants fully equipped.

Offered either as a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, the Biblical and Theological Studies program is designed to enable students to have a thorough working knowledge of the Old and New Testaments, along with an understanding of Christian theology. This equips them for Christian service in whatever area they pursue.

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. The 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 requirements for ordination in The Wesleyan Church. Click here to find the Ordination Track that OKWU offers.
