Bible and Theology

Spread the Gospel to people in local churches with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Global University. 

Course Outline

All across the globe God is calling people to serve Him in active Christian Ministry. The Bible and Theology undergraduate degree program from Global University is designed to equip you to answer the call. Global University allows you to study within a flexible time frame wherever you are. You may be already involved in active Christian Ministry and in need of formal theological training. Or you may have a full-time job and be unable to attend a university campus.

If you want to preach, teach, and lead in a Church environment, our Bible and Theology course will equip you with the tools to do so. You’ll learn how to interpret the Bible and apply it to your own life and the lives of those you lead.

The Bachelor of Arts in Bible and Theology is designed to provide the biblical and theological background required for pastoral or preaching ministry. After successfully completing this curriculum, students can properly interpret the Bible, demonstrate a working knowledge of the history and application of Christian theology, preach and teach the gospel in a local setting, conduct programs in their local churches that will facilitate the ongoing vitality of the Christian faith, and pursue advanced academic studies.
