Program Description:

Thesis Option
There is also the option of doing a thesis as part of this degree.  Students who demonstrate sufficient academic success (at least a B+ or higher in the subject area and a GPA of at least B+) are encouraged to consider the thesis option.  The thesis allows students to pursue their own research, while working with an academic mentor on the faculty. Those who intend to go on for further academic training are strongly encouraged to pursue the thesis option.  (6 units)

NOTE: Students wishing to write a thesis in biblical studies, must use two (2) of their electives for appropriate biblical language study.
