DEGREE COMPLETION PROGRAM

Degree Completion Program

Dr. John Hughes, Director

The Degree Completion Program is designed to

meet the needs of today’s working adult learners by

providing accelerated courses that are practical in

focus, interactive in teaching/learning format, and

delivered in a one evening (6:00-10:00 p.m.) per week

format that is as convenient as possible. The Degree

Completion Program can be completed in as few as

20 months, depending upon the major course of

study selected and sufficient transfer units.

The major program is open to adults who have a

testimony of personal faith in Jesus Christ, a grade

point average of 2.0 or better in all prior academic

work from an accredited college, and an ability to

write at a collegiate level.

Students in the Degree Completion Program

complete their major coursework in cohorts that

allow them to work on one class at a time and to

meet with the same classmates throughout the entire

program. This provides an excellent opportunity for

encouragement, support, accountability, camaraderie,

and lasting relationships, while at the same time

moving students toward completion of their

educational goals.

The classes in the Degree Completion Program are

kept small (typically 6-12 students), allowing for

personalized attention. Personalized discipleship

enhances spiritual maturity, and personalized

scholarship encourages the pursuit of individual

academic excellence, as unto the Lord.

The Degree Completion Program offers three major

courses of study in addition to its General Education

(GE) course offerings. Students may earn a Bachelor

of Arts degree in Biblical Counseling, Christian

Ministries, or Organizational Management.
