Mr. James McLaughlin, Director
The Master’s College offers an intensive Bible program
designed to give students a deeper understanding of
God’s Word and aid the church in equipping individuals
for ministry. Providing students with the opportunity to
build a solid foundation on the Word of God, the TMC
Online curriculum offers a systematic study of the Bible
and Theology in a flexible online learning environment.
Through the Intensive Bible Program
,
students gain a
practical working knowledge of God’s Word and the abil-
ity to express that knowledge. In addition to solid Bible
training, upon completion of the award of completion in
biblical studies, two additional opportunities are available.
First, a student may transfer the equivalent of one year
of units into the baccalaureate program at The Master’s
College to complete a bachelor’s degree. Second, the
coursework is transferable to any other Christian college
since The Master’s College is accredited by the Western
Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
