BA, Christian Ministry and Divinity

The double major programs at Spurgeon College are divided into three distinct sections. Students take classes in the General Education component, the Christian component, and then in the Professional component.

The Christian Ministry major will not only provide a foundational core of Bible and Theology, but will introduce the student to the practical side of Christian Ministry. The Divinity major is designed for individuals who anticipate serving as pastors, evangelists, associate pastors, missionaries, or in other ministries that emphasize expository preaching, or teaching of the Word of God.

Online Option

You can now complete the BA in Christian Ministry and Divinity degree using one of three different formats: on-campus, online, or a blended format. Spurgeon College provides a Christian environment in which to study and learn. Our smaller size allows you to have more personal contact with your professors. Our new online program allows you the convenience of study on your schedule and in your home or office. The blended format provides the advantages of both. Many of the online courses offered in the BA in Christian Ministry and Divinity degree plan meet the requirements of several degree plans offered through Spurgeon College; however, before registering for a course, be sure it meets the requirements for your specific degree plan.
