The Biblical Studies Associate Degree prepares students to study and defend the Bible and encourages the development of Christ-centered character.
CCU's Biblical Studies Associate Degree is a two-year degree program that combines a foundational liberal arts education with an introduction to biblical studies, Christian doctrine and theology. The curriculum emphasizes Christian values as part of every course. A key focus is spiritual formation -- developing a Christ-centered character that is visible through servanthood to God and others.
In the Biblical Studies AA degree program, you will learn the basic doctrines of the Christian faith and beliefs, including revelation, the Trinity, creation, reconciliation and the church. You will explore the interpretation and provenance of the Old Testament, and examine the content, message and significance of the New Testament. Plus you'll study an overview of biblical languages and learn about research tools to study biblical text.
Classes are typically completed in 5-week blocks.

The 60-hour Biblical Studies Associate Degree program can be completed in less than two years, even without any prior coursework. However, you can complete your degree faster if you already have college, military or technical credits. You may transfer up to 45 prior credit hours toward your degree at CCU.
The Biblical Studies Associate Degree prepares you for various ministry positions, working in missions, and social service opportunities. The degree also helps you with your own personal spiritual formation which can better prepare you to serve in any environment.
In addition, the associate degree provides a foundation for further career advancement if you continue on to complete your bachelor's degree. All 60 credit hours from your CCU Biblical Studies associate degree may be applied to our Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies. Once you complete your bachelor's degree, you can even continue on to our Master of Arts in Counseling or Master of Organizational Leadership program for more advanced career options.
