Which Program Should I Choose?


Options for Studying with Global University

Select the Global University in Canada program that best suits your plans for the future. If you are looking for fully credentialed ministry with the PAOC, select one of the BA's in Bible & Theology Degree program. The same is true if you wish to do graduate level study at some point in the future.

If you are not sure where you want to end up, select the Certificate in Bible and Theology since this 13-course program will enable you to apply for a PAOC Recognition of Ministry credential. The courses in this program can also be applied towards the Global Diploma in Theology or the BA in Bible & Theology Degree program in the future.

NOTE: The 3-Year Bachelor of Arts degrees in the Global catalogue are only available to those students who have earned an “A” level certificate or the equivalent in an educational system outside of North America which provides sufficient education at the pre-college level so as to allow a student to earn a bachelor’s degree in 3 rather than 4 years. The Ontario OAC or Grade 13 diploma used to provide this level of qualification but it was phased out in 2003. If you have an Ontario Grade 13 diploma or OAC year you may be eligible to take this 3-year BA program.
