Course Descriptions


Course Policy: A minimum of six students is normally required for courses to materialize. All courses are intended to be offered as indicated, but course frequency may be affected due to unforeseen circumstances. We will make every effort to assist students in finding appropriate courses each semester.

Transfer of Course Credit: Students should be aware that transfer of credit is always at the discretion of the receiving institution. Accreditation does not guarantee transferability. Any student interested in transferring credit hours should check with the receiving institution directly to determine to what extent, if any, credit hours can be transferred.

Division System: For the Master of Arts, Master of Arts in Christian Ministry, Master of Arts in Counseling, and Master of Divinity degrees, courses are offered in three divisions.  The divisions are organized as follows:

  1. Biblical Division
    1. Old Testament Area
    2. New Testament Area
  2. Theological Division
    1. Historical Theology Area
    2. Systematic Theology Area
  3. Ministerial Division
    1. Counseling and MFT Area
    2. Homiletics Area
    3. Congregational Ministry and Christian Formation Area
    4. Christian Missions Area

Core Requirements: Explanations and exceptions are noted below.
