BIBLE AND THEOLOGY is the study of God's Word and of God's relation to the world.

About the Program

Bible and Theology offers you the most intensive study in Old and New Testament courses, biblical languages and narrative and historical approaches to theology. You’ll focus on developing your mind and intellect while building a scriptural foundation to prepare you for graduate studies or for additional seminary work in pastoral ministry, youth ministry or Christian education.


There are many scholarship opportunities for Bible and Theology majors. Ministry students have the potential of receiving roughly $20,000 in financial assistance over four years, significantly minimizing debt and easing the transition into ministry.

  • all freshmen receive a $1250 their first semester and another $1250 scholarship once they pass the Introduction to Ministry course
  • Sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply for the Ministry Student Internship Program ($4500-$7500/year)
  • Sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply for the General Ministry Scholarships ($500-$3000/year)

This program also consists of fewer credit hours, so it allows you the time for a double major, combining Bible and Theology with a study in another interest or discipline.
