A Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Theology has a dual function: it fulfills pre-seminary requirements and is a preparation for the pastoral ministry and allied professions such as hospital chaplaincy and public evangelism. For those planning to enter the seminary, a cumulative grade point average of 2.50 is required. Emphasis is given to multicultural or intercultural understanding and active involvement in developing practical ministry skills. Learning how to interpret the Bible for yourself and others, gaining appreciation for Seventh-day Adventist theological foundations and experience are also central to this program.
To complete the requirements of this degree one must complete the major and cognate requirements, and general education courses and electives.
