This two-year degree program is intended either for students who may transfer to a liberal arts college to seek a major not offered at WJU, or for students who want a well-rounded education that balances Bible, ministry, and foundational studies. Students who complete this program will have gained a strong foundation for lifelong autonomous learning, and the skills and broad worldview needed for effective service and leadership, both in the church and in an increasingly multicultural society.
Furthermore, these students will demonstrate:
- An ability to communicate the Word of God.
- An understanding of the world and its history.
- A basic understanding of the general themes of the Bible and biblical history.
- An understanding of the church revealed in scripture and several basic principles of New Testament Christianity.
