Bachelors in Biblical Studies (B.A.), emphasis in Theology

The Theology emphasis is a comprehensive study of theology in which students will not only focus their attention on systematic theology, but also be able to better understand Christianity in relation to other worldviews, religions, and philosophies. It is designed for those students who desire to further their education in seminary and eventually serve in a pastoral or teaching capacity.

Meet Brian Morley, Professor of Philosophy and Apologetics

  • 10:1 student- teacher ratio allowing for an unparalleled level of teacher-student mentorship and a high-level of scholarship

  • Biblical Languages: Students will have a working knowledge of Greek or Hebrew, be able to apply hermeneutics to correctly interpret biblical text and understand ministry from a biblical perspective.

  • Israel Bible Extension (IBEX): TMU is the only campus to offer an entire semester abroad in Israel. Students can spend a semester studying the Bible in the land it occurred and earn 15-18 units. Tuition is the same as on-campus, the only additional cost is the student’s airfare.

  • ACBC Counseling We are one of the first campuses to offer a Biblical Counseling degree, and one of the few to hold to ACBC counseling vs. integrational models.
