Recommendation for Course Scheduling: Due to the extensive reading requirements of the Bible survey courses, it is suggested that these courses be taken slowly over a longer period of time while taking other courses at the same time. We do not recommend taking more than two courses at the same time. Below is a suggested timeline for study with an expected time of completion of 16 to 18 months; however, students may determine the rate of study (and the order if desired).

  • 1st trimester - take BIB501 (4 months) while taking THE520 (2 months) then THE521 (2 months)
  • 2nd trimester - take BIB502 (4 months) while taking THE522 (2 months) then THE523 (2 months)
  • 3rd trimester - take BIB503 (4 months) while taking THE524 (2 months) then REL525 (2 months)
  • Finish with the Capstone project - CAP590 (4-6 months)
Textbooks and Other Resources

Textbooks and other resources are not included in the tuition prices. It will be the responsibility of the student to secure the necessary resources to complete each course. Many of the courses have suggested and even required texts; however, please keep in mind that many resources are available through public libraries and the internet without cost.

It is important for the student to consider the quality of resources cited in coursework. All resources are not of the same quality academically. For the most part, resources should be both academic and scholarly if possible. For example, a quotation taken from a church website may be important to your point, but it should not be considered a primary resource for an assignment.

Before choosing your resources, ask yourself, "Is this resource primarily academic and scholarly?" If so, then it is probably a good choice. If you have questions about resources, let us know. We will be glad to help.
