Credit Program

Berean Bible College offers a comprehensive curriculum aligned with vocational majors.  Students pursuing certificates or degrees must enroll as Credit Students and complete the prescribed courses required for graduation and pass them with a grade of C- or better.

Audit Program

Students who desire to take classes to grow spiritually without earning credits towards a degree or certificate may audit a class.  Whether or not a student will take the class for credit or under the audit program must be determined prior to the registration deadline, (generally aligned with the second week of the session).  Only classes taken for credit are recognized towards a certificate or degree.

Vocation Objectives

Missionary
This course major is designed to furnish the student with knowledge of the Bible and prepare the individual for full time service in the mission field.  It is similar to the Ministerial course except that it is intended to prepare students for service in missions, both at home and abroad.  Special emphasis is placed on practical training on how to establish indigenous churches.
