Bible Major—General Studies Emphasis, Bachelor of Arts Degree
Grow in God’s Word
For students desiring greater knowledge of God’s Word, but not necessarily planning for pastoral ministry, the general studies emphasis provides comprehensive Bible courses coupled with enriching liberal arts courses for an exceptional education.
In classes, Campus Church, chapel, and various avenues of ministry, students have opportunities to grow in God’s Word while being challenged to serve others. Bible classes combine academic instruction with spiritual application to prepare students’ minds and hearts for their chosen fields of service.
The purpose of the general studies emphasis is to prepare Christians for effective service in a nonpastoral setting.
Graduates of the general studies emphasis will be able to
- demonstrate thorough knowledge of the content and themes of the Word of God,
- defend sound doctrine,
- evaluate current issues in light of biblical teaching,
- develop a biblical philosophy of ministry, and
- present biblical truth correctly and clearly.

I would strongly recommend that those pursuing a Bible degree from PCC learn as much of the Bible as they can while at PCC. While extra activities are important in college, learning and studying the Bible with a fervency and desire in one’s heart will always have a lasting effect upon one’s biblical worldview.
