Adult Education

Convenient. Affordable. Supportive.

Earn a bachelor’s degree, associate’s degree, or certificate in less time than you think at Lancaster Bible College.

If starting or going back to college is the next step for you, LBC is here to help! We know taking classes on a regular schedule – or even taking classes on campus – may not fit into your life as a busy, working adult. That’s why we designed our adult education undergraduate degrees program! Through this program, you’ll receive the same accredited, quality, Christ-centered education offered through traditional undergraduate campus programs – but in a shorter amount of time.

Each course in the undergraduate adult education program is taught in a 6-week accelerated pace that enables you to focus on one course at a time. This accelerated delivery style allows you to earn your college degree in one of two ways:

  • ONLINE: study on your own schedule
  • IN CLASS: one day a week for 3 – 4 hours (usually evenings), 2 locations
