"Bible For Graduates" Program There is a recognized need for a special­ ized program in biblical studies for the col­ lege or professional school graduate who wishes to be better prepared for Christian service. Biola offers such a course of study. This course is not intended as a substitute for theological seminary education or a Bible institute study diploma program, but is designed to give the graduate who has not had a solid foundation in the Word of God such a foundation. This course is designed to impart to the graduate student sound biblical knowledge through the three principal systems of Bible study: survey, analysis and exposition. It is intended that this course of study will foster independent study of the Word of God. In the event that the student has had any of the required courses in the program, appropriate substitutions may be made. It is believed that the 30 units required in the program will give the student a broad back­ ground in a relatively short period of time. A course of study leading to the Master of Arts degree is available through Biola's graduate school, Talbot School of Theology. Please see graduate section for details.
