At MBC we offer a number of degree programs each designed to increase your knowledge of the Bible. This page includes general information relating to requirements and expectations. For details on what is covered in a particular program select it from the list.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Typed exams, papers and book reports are an integral part of MBC courses.  All students will submit assignments using their approved Google Drive account.  A basic understanding of computers is suggested.

Programs at MBC have been designed as accelerated continuing education courses on standard semesters.

Although class time has been limited to once per week, it is expected that the student will spend an additional 8 hours per week in assigned study. Therefore the student will have spent approximately 300 hours in comprehensive study in order to earn an Associates or Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies.

For the Master’s Degree Program, in addition to regular class work, a thesis of 25,000 words must also be completed. This will also require considerable study time outside of class.

The Biblical Counseling Certificate program is a post Bachelor’s program that prepares the student to perform biblical counseling under the covering of a church. This certificate does not lead to becoming a state licensed counselor but does prepare the student for providing biblical answers to life challenges that face counselees. Although class time has been limited to once per week, it is expected that the student will spend an additional 8 hours per week in assigned study. Therefore the student will have spent approximately 300 hours in comprehensive study in order to earn a Biblical Counseling Certificate.

Note: We reserve the right to change curricula as deemed appropriate by the Department of Curriculum.
