Building on a Biblical foundation, the D.B.S. in Biblical Interdisciplinary areas allows the doctoral student to select half of the required credits in courses that will most beneft his or her ministry.  Dozens of doctoral and speciality level courses are offered in a variety of useful formats.

 

This unique approach is ideal for the minister who is seeking to gain wider knowledge by targeting courses that have the greatest potential to enlighten and empower.  As the writer of Proverbs counseled, "How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver" (Proverbs 16:16).
