Oklahoma Baptist University will offer a fully online Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies degree through the Hobbs School of Theology and Ministry beginning January 2023. The University is taking applications for the program now.
Designed for working professionals, classes for the online Christian studies program are offered online in an asynchronous format, allowing students to access classes at times convenient for their schedules.
“Adult learners who want to go back to school to complete a degree or who feel called to better equip themselves by pursuing a bachelor’s degree now have a viable option through OBU,” said Micah Meek, associate dean for online, nontraditional and graduate education.
“This degree is specifically built so that adult learners can further their education wherever they may be. We are thrilled to be able to provide access to an OBU education to individuals who may already be employed, established in a community or serving globally. With a tuition rate of $350 per hour, we have tried to make the degree as affordable as possible,” he said.
The online Christian studies program provides courses in biblical and theological studies along with the university’s common core, which equips students with skills that foster critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, effective communication and a Christian worldview in all areas of life.
Courses are offered in eight-week sessions throughout the year. Students may start at any time and can finish in as few as three years or set their own pace for completion. The 120-hour degree can be completed in an even shorter timeframe by students who have already earned college credits. The program includes 25 elective hours so students can transfer in prior undergraduate coursework to fulfill the electives or explore other areas of interests through OBU.
