General Ministries - Modular Program
The BRE Modular Program is a non-traditional program specifically designed for adults who want to complete a Bachelor of Religious Education (BRE) degree but who are unable to attend traditional semester education programs and have little or no transfer credit from previous postsecondary education.
The program provides you with all the requirements you need to complete a BRE degree with a focus in General Ministries. It is designed to serve adults interested in studying the Bible, doctrine and ministry with the intent of becoming more effective Christians in ministry and in the workplace.
Full-time undergraduate education is made possible for adults because of its unique design. Each course consists of one four-hour evening class per week for five weeks supplemented by 14-18 hours of guided independent study per week. This format gives you essentially the same time involvement as a traditional schedule.
The program’s goal is to integrate Christian faith, learning and living in a meaningful and practical way. An important component of the BRE Modular Program is the Directed Research Project comprised of academic instruction and individual advising by a qualified professional. You will choose from one of the following areas of interest: Educational Ministries, Intercultural Studies, Pastoral Studies or Youth Ministry.
