Comments:

  •         Faculty advisors work with students to create a degree plan that enables them to complete the minor and their bachelor’s degree.

This certificate is designed for individuals who:

  • * are currently in the BBFI missions application-approval process
  • * have been recommended to the program by the BBFI Missions Office
  • * have not completed a bachelor’s degree

The Missions Certificate specifically applies to those who do not have a bachelor’s degree and desire to fulfill requirements for BBFI missions while furthering their education. The Missions Certificate’s purpose is to prepare students to work effectively in intercultural settings and involves successful completion of eighteen (18) semester hours of undergraduate level Missions courses.

All courses are three (3) semester hours and may be completed by Distance Education and/or in traditional courses. No more than 50% of the courses may be taken by Distance Education. This blend of courses covers missions from the perspective of Bible, theology, theory, cultural concepts and practical training.

The Missions Certificate program emphasizes practical skills to enhance students’ ability to understand and work with people whose worldview is different from their own. The learning schedule is flexible to allow for moderate (2 years) to intense (1 year) study plans. Courses subsequently may apply toward requirements of the Bachelor of Science Missions program or other undergraduate programs at BBC.

This certificate is not eligible for federal financial aid.

This block of courses may also serve as a minor.
