BE101 Introduction to Psychology (3)

A general introduction to the basic concepts of psychology, with emphasis given to the various theories of psychology

along with a thorough biblical analysis and critique.

BIB101a-d Distinctives of Biblical Living (4)

The education at The Master’s University is committed to helping all students develop a comprehensive biblical

worldview and to grow in their biblical thinking and living. We have imbedded strategic opportunities for our students

to develop spiritually within our traditional undergraduate experience and desire to give similar opportunity within our

online degrees. Throughout our students’ online program they will take four one-unit courses entitled Distinctives of

Biblical Living (I-IV). These courses are designed to help students comprehend, reflect, and apply through their own

spiritual development according to four main biblical principles. These principles are Divine Authority, Heart

Transformation, Sanctifying Relationships, and Gospel Witness. Each course is designed to promote these biblical

principles of spiritual growth through practical expressions in the students’ lives that complement their online

educational experience. We recognize that no formal program can create genuine spiritual growth, but we are confident

these courses give every student the opportunity to biblically develop lives that give glory to our Master.

BIB306 Christian Worldview & Ethics (3)

This course is designed to reintroduce the student into the rigor of university life. Academic skills such as becoming a

master student, time management, goal setting, and study principles are examined. The process of critical thinking and

analysis as well as the concept of a Christian worldview will be covered. The characteristics of successful leaders and

the traits they exhibit in everyday decision-making responsibilities are identified and studied.

BIB310 Foundations of Biblical Study (3)

This course introduces the student to the necessary skills and techniques that promote educational success in the online

environment. Academic writing and research techniques promoting information literacy are examined and applied. This

course is also undergirded by an essential focus on spiritual formation foundational to healthy ministry—personal as

well as corporate—within the life of the church. Guiding principles constituting biblical ministry within the curriculum

are established.

BIB349 Dynamics of Grace (3)

The course will examine why the gospel is the energizing truth that drives the believer’s sanctification. In-depth attention

will be paid to the spiritual discipline of ongoing faith in the gospel (“preaching the gospel to oneself each day”).

Attention will also be given to the biblical connection between the gospel and the believer’s worship, walk, warfare,

witness, oneness, and worldview. The practical theology of this course is designed especially to address the “disconnect”

which commonly exists between faith and life, between doctrine and practice.

Prerequisites: B101, B102, B201, B202,

B340, BIB310, BTH321, and BTH322.

BIB355 Worldview, Apologetics, Evangelism (3)

This class will examine why a biblical worldview is about total reality, not just religious truth. It will equip the student

to critique erroneous worldviews for the purpose of becoming effective in evangelism. The class will also examine the

need for and the methodology used in pre-suppositional apologetics. It will also consider the appropriate use of Christian

evidences and their proper place in the apologetic presentation.

Prerequisites: B101, B102, B201, B202, B340, BIB310,

BTH321, and BTH322.

BIB375 Church History (3)

Apostolic Age to the present. The course will include discussions of the church fathers, major councils, the Reformation,

and key church leaders over the last 2,000 years.

Prerequisites: B101, B102, B201, B202, B340, BIB310, BTH321, and
