The Bachelor of Arts in Theology is intended to be a 60-credit religious first degree for those considering a vocation to Christian ministry in the Anglican tradition. The focus of the degree is to provide a general education in the Bible, systematic theology, church history, liturgy, and pastoral studies, leading to ordination as a deacon or setting apart as a deaconess. It provides the basis for further biblical, theological, and pastoral studies through the Master of Arts or Bachelor of Divinity program.
