Custom Developed Majors and Courses
We offer the opportunity to those who want to develop majors and/or study courses not specifically mentioned in this catalog. As long as we have a faculty member who is available and is an expert in the field that you wish to study, you may, with the mentor's help, develop a special program of study. Also, in some cases a student may already have someone in mind who is an expert in the field. Some have asked if their pastors, or former professors,or colleagues in ministry may function as their mentors. As long as the person is qualified, the answer is "yes." Qualified means having a degree from an accredited school in the subject matter to be studied.
So, a student working with a mentor may design virtually any program leading to a degree. Here are just some examples of classes and/or programs that could be developed:
The Postmodern influence on modern theology.
The pneumatic theology of Luke/Acts.
Missions to specific peoples or cultures.
Old Testament Hebrew Poetry.
TV Evangelism's theological influence on modern theology and society.
Research of a specific theologian and his teachings.
African American theological influence on modern theology.
The New Cults: new cults developed in the last 20 years.
And many, many more
Virtually any topic under the category and within the boundaries of religious studies can be developed.
