Take an in-depth look at the Bible, including methods of interpretation, with the biblical studies emphasis.
- Courses focus on the classical Greek language and texts, biblical literature and the church as it does (and could) exist today.
- Both the Old and New Testaments are examined, and optional courses explore the teachings of Paul and Anabaptist theology.
Graduates with a biblical studies emphasis possess the knowledge necessary to pursue careers and advanced study in Christian ministries, church leadership and Christian education, but the knowledge developed can be beneficial in any position.
Note: Emphasis courses are additional courses that are to be completed alongside the general education and parent program requirements as dictated by the Fresno Pacific University catalog. Please review the course requirements for baccalaureate programs and the general education summary in the Undergraduate Academic Catalog.
