Biblical Studies

Biblical Studies is an excellent way for students to further their understanding of the Bible and the teachings within. However, what differentiates Biblical Studies from other areas of study is that students will not only gain a deeper understanding of the Bible’s historical and religious content but also of their own faith.

grow in your faith and knowledge

The Bible is the heart of the curriculum at Faulkner University, accepted and taught as the inspired, authoritative, and all-sufficient word of God. Training for dedicated Christian service is emphasized in and out of the classroom.

The V. P. Black College of Biblical Studies exists to serve the students of the University as a whole. Students in their freshman and sophomore years usually take two Bible courses a year.  Students in their junior and senior years usually take one Bible course each year. Part-time students must take a Bible course for every fifteen hours enrolled. Transfer students will likely take at least one Bible course each semester.

Students interested in learning about the Bible, their religion and their faith should consider pursuing one of the many Biblical Studies programs that offered here at Faulkner University. List of all degrees in alphabetical order »
