Diploma of Theology (108 credits)
A full three year program, the Diploma of Theology degree is bestowed upon students who desire more training than can be given in a Certificate or Associate degree, but do not want the full load of the Bachelor program.

Bachelor of Biblical Study (B.B.S. 136 credits)
This balanced program focuses on biblical courses, mission, and pastoring, and is just the right undergraduate degree for serious students preparing for the ministry, who do not want to pursue Biblical languages study.

Bachelor of Theology (B.Th. 136 credits)
The B.Th. is similar to the Bachelor of Biblical Study in its emphasis on the Bible, mission, and pastoring. However, this program adds Biblical languages into its curriculum. It is slightly more rigorous, because students must pass first year Greek with acceptable grades.

Sarjana of Theology (S.Th. 160 credits)
Situated between the bachelor and the master program, the S.Th. gives the most complete undergraduate education, combining academic rigor with practical ministerial skills. As a result, graduates will be doctrinally sound as well as practically competent. At the end of study, the fundamentals of Biblical languages must be mastered, and the graduate must write a major project on a theological issue.

Master of Biblical Study (M.B.S. 172 credits*)
