Ba. Adv. Theology

ObJectives

The program leading to the theology program is designed for those students who do not anticipate seminary study and who want the fullest possible preparation which this institution offers for the pastoral ministry. This program is similar in all respects to the pastor’s (4 year) program with the exception that a fifth year makes possible great depth in each of the 3 main areas of study: Bible and Theology (51 Hrs); General Education (45 Hrs), and the vocational concentration in Pastoral Studies (36 Hrs). In addition to the increased requirement in course hours, the student must also demonstrate his ability to do some original research in his field and to express clearly his Christian convictions. Any person who has received previously a Bachelor of Arts degree or any other degree at the Bachelor’s level from an approved institution may be a candidate for the theological program. This program should not be confused with the Bachelor of Divinity degree offered by seminaries or divinity schools.

Program

A total of 153 hours is required to complete this course of study. In addition to these hours the student is expected to write a thesis on some aspects of practical theology. The topic of this thesis is to be chosen in consultation with the head of the department of pastoral studies.
