BS Religion

The Bachelor of Science in Religion, delivered 100% online, prepares students to pursue their calling into the ministry as they study biblical, theological, and faith-related topics. We believe that faith transforms lives and therefore we desire to help our students intentionally engage in the process of spiritual formation. Our program is founded on the truth that spiritual formation helps us begin to realize that who we are is as important as what we do.
