Is this major right for me?

This degree is designed for students who have a passion for the language, message and historical context of the Bible. It is ideal for those planning to pursue graduate studies and preach. After receiving a solid foundation in University Core and general education Bible classes, students delve deeply into language and textual classes, as well as exegesis and church history.
