(126 semester hours/credits)

This 126-credit hour degree program is designed to provide a four-year Bachelor of Arts curriculum (although many students take five years to complete the program) with a Bible major, a related minor, and extensive General Education coursework.

Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies: Minors

When students graduate from PIBC and move into the workplace, they are asked to fill many roles—as teachers, church workers, government employees, and others. While PIBC’s goal is for all students to have a Bible major, we also want to be responsive to the student’s vocational needs. Thus each student must select a minor consisting of 18 hours of related coursework. Eight minors are currently available, each with a different focus. Descriptions of minors, the types of students who might select them and the needed courses to fulfill each is below.

    • Elementary Education Minor
    • TESL Minor
    • Pastoral Studies Minor
    • Biblical Research Minor
    • Christian Education Minor
    • Missions Minor
    • General Ministry Minor
    • Outdoor Recreation Minor
