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.
Typed exams, papers and book reports are an integral part of MBC courses.
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 counselors. 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.
|Grade and range||Points|
Any grade below C is unacceptable and if the student wants to pass the course, additional work must be completed. Professors are available to assist any student who needs extra help and assistance. If for illness or other acceptable circumstances a student is unable to complete a course, a petition may be made to the President of MBC and, if approved, the student may be allowed to retake the course by paying an additional half the tuition and any additional fees that may apply to that course at that time. In rare cases, the student may be allowed to retake the class without cost if approved by the President of MBC.
