The purpose of the 123-hour program with split majors in Biblical Studies and Biblical Counseling culminating in a Bachelor of Science degree is to provide a biblical model for biblical counseling. The training will prepare men and women to engage in church, parachurch or private biblical counseling and provide a base for seminary or other graduate training. Note: The courses offered in the curriculum are not designed to meet academic or other requirements of the State of Texas for licensure as a professional counselor.
Students take only one course at a time in the curriculum, attending one 4-hour class session with breakout sessions for small-group collaborative and independent work each week. The courses are accelerated five weeks in length. The program is 24-months of six consecutive semesters, requiring 9 credits each semester from the CBS core curriculum. Students are members of a continuing class - a cohort group, among whom an atmosphere of shared learning and personal, family, ministry and career interests develops. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a Bachelor of Science Degree with major in Biblical Studies and Christian Leadership.
