Program Distinctives
  • LBC’s Bible & Theology Department, through Bible ministries’ tracks, provides students with the flexibility to choose courses from various professional departments, while also giving them the same core Bible & theology and arts & science courses as all LBC majors. These options are ideal for those who wish to go into missionary service and who will need a broader ministry exposure. It also prepares graduates who are involved in smaller ministries that need generalists rather than specialists.
  • These academic options use an interdisciplinary approach which allows students to design a course of study to match their academic interests with their ministry preparation.

Biblical Studies Certificate and Advanced Certificate

Offered in conjunction with Biblical Enrichment, the Biblical Studies Certificate (16 CEUs) can be earned by auditing accelerated undergraduate courses. The tuition to audit each course is $240, plus a $35 fee that is due every term. Auditing students are expected to attend class time, but the completion of assignments/homework to be submitted to the professor is not required. Those who earn 14 more CEUs through our Biblical Enrichment option, or by auditing additional courses can earn our Advanced Certificate (30 CEUs).

This certificate indicates the student is a graduate of Biblical Enrichment. Forty percent of the courses are in Bible or doctrine. The CEUs earned in this option and CEUs earned in Biblical Enrichment can transfer to our bachelor’s degree in accelerated undergraduate degrees. The Biblical Studies Certificate will transfer as five (5) credits in Bible/theology.
