Biblical Studies Certificate (CAGS)


College of Adult and Graduate Studies


School of Biblical and Theological Studies

The Biblical Studies Certificate helps students develop a comprehensive knowledge of both the Old and New Testaments, equipping them for ministry at church and in group settings. Students will understand the basic themes, issues and schools-of-thought in Christian theology, and will be given the tools to integrate biblical knowledge with contemporary world issues and events.

The Biblical Studies Certificate program consists of three required courses and one elective course. Before beginning courses, students must complete the prerequisite course, Introduction to College Writing (course), to demonstrate proficiency in writing. Three semester hours (or the equivalent) of transfer credit may be used toward the certificate. 

Students may earn the certificate by completing the 12 hours listed under the 'Program Requirements' tab and any required prerequisites.
