This program requires students to complete a Bible and Theology Pretest and a General Education Pretest as well as posttests in the same two areas. The pretests must be completed before students request the final exam for their first course. The posttests are a part of the undergraduate capstone requirement. It is recommended that students begin working on the essay and verbal components of their capstone within six months of graduating. The posttests and graduation follow-up survey should be completed during their last course. All four capstone components must be submitted before requesting the final exam for their last course. There is no cost for these assessments.
Thesis option available: Students who plan to continue their education in graduate school or seminary may study this program with a thesis option to better prepare themselves for studies at that level. A 6-credit thesis and two 3-credit New Testament Greek courses can be selected to replace an equal number of elective credits in this program.
